Wearable Tech DIY Tutorials
Are you ready to embark on the journey of DIY wearables and FashionTech? Whether for costume, cosplay, nightlife, or festival wear: adding electronics to your clothing is an eye-catching form of self-expression.
I’ve put together my best tutorials for working with LEDs, soft circuits, fiber optics, and batteries for wearables. Stay tuned for more tutorials in wearables, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Stitchkit, Fiber Optics, and other DIY projects. We aim to make the tutorials easy-to-understand, and take away the complexity of unfamiliar tech terms and challenging techniques.
