Students use paint, conductive thread, and LilyPad components in combination with t-shirts, tote bags, and, most recently, stuffed animals to create “wearable e-textiles”. Memorable designs include an “Operation” t-shirt (the man’s nose lit up red when certain organs were touched), a Winnie the Pooh tote-bag (featuring LED bees, a button and a speaker that played the Winnie the Pooh theme song), and a Jedi stuffed animal (the cow had an LED green light saber and a speaker that played the Star Wars theme song).
