Format: Paperback
This book not only has some very cute accessory/fashion combos, but also contains some great easy-to-make patterns for clever, inexpensive gifts that tweens & teens will particularly like. In these financially challenging times, this is a great resource or can be a great gift for crafters who may like to include fun "techno" items in their repertoire!

If you love fashion and love electronics, this is for you! I am not electronically minded so it's sort of a challenge. The ideas are great fun, not extremely functional in the scheme of things, but fun none the less.
I think it's more for inspiration.
Hope this helps you!

I admit that my expectations of this book probably influenced how much I was disappointed. I really want to add some electronics to my clothes and costumes, and I was anticipating that this book would give me some foundational knowledge so that I could then design my own projects.

What this book actually is, is a series of projects that amount to gluing things onto existing electronics, and making a few electronics projects with very little explanation of how they work (e.g. Why that resistor? Would it be different for a different LED?). There is a very small gallery of fantastic examples at the end, but in order to do any of them I'll have to study on my own for at least a few more months, possibly years. (I've already started, but for that I have an entirely different set of books.)

The main things that I got out of this book are how to keep the anode and cathode ends of my LED straight when adapting them to sewing, and a burning desire to learn to use an arduino.

In a remote place such as the small Polynesian island where I live, books that can be downloaded and are instructive and easy to read are a blessing. Thank you, Diana Eng, for sharing your quirky ideas with your readers!
