Working Hard in the ICE Office :P

(1)  Pleos!

These things are so cute!  I don’t know why I like playing with them so much… they’re just..cute!  They’re like little puppy dogs… the feighned intellegence making some of it’s actions adorably fun.

(2)  Wearable Computers

So one of my jobs/responsibilities at ICE (when I’m not helping out with camps, teacher workshops, paperwork, resetting kits, or other misc. responsibilities) is experimenting with a “new” wearable computer technology.

LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. They’re even washable!

I’m really excited to be able to work on this project.  It’s actually really interesting and the potential for the product is crazy.  It’s just… for some reason I’m stuck trying to get the program onto the LilyPad.  It’s kind of key :P.
