Soldering and sewing: A Nashua class about adding electronics into your clothing

Electronics doesn't have to live in plastic boxes; you can add it to your shirt or shoes. That's the idea behind the "wearable technology" subset of the maker movement, a.k.a. "soft circuits". It's a new idea to me, although I've certainly seen those kids' sneakers which light up when they step.

You can find out more about making your own wearable tech at MakeIt Labs, which is holding a class this Saturday; it's the topic of my column in The Telegraph this week. (Read it here,)

For people with my manual dexterity, this field offers an opportunity to stab yourself and burn yourself, in one outing! Such efficiency.
