Arduino "Lily Pad" by Leah Buechley

The Lily Pad is a microcontroller board designed in collaboration between Leah Buechley and retailer SparkFun.  Microcontrollers such as the Lily Pad are designed to run with the computer program Arduino in order to make physical electronic components interact and be controlled by your computer.  The innovation that makes the Lily Pad so neat is it was designed for wearable projects (its washable and able to be sewn into fabrics) and its feminine design to attract girls to the world of physical computing.  Check out the Make Blog's article on Leah Buechley's DIY turn signal shirt.
