Hi Eric,

  Thanks for the links! Janet Hansen's business is captivating and
crossing it with Cosabella sounds like a fun venture.

  I am interested in teaming up with you on the choker, if you can endure
my learning to speak the same (computer) languages as you guys. I have
to admit yesterday's meeting felt more foreign than any language/CS
course I've taken! But you are all amazing, cool people! =)

  For the compass project, if you guys want to try placing it in a corset,
I'd be happy to experiment with that. The battery/chip unit would hide
nicely inside an obi (the sash on a kimono).

  Are you guys skipping next week's meeting, since it overlaps with
RoboGames?

Smiles,
  Chung-Hay

subtle difference?) business of illuminated clothing.  Like I said, right
up your alley, but VERY expensive.  Pretty much everything is custom and
she charges about $10/LED.  So most things are in the
multi-hundreds or even thousands of dollar range.

intimidate you, it's actually a lot of fun making stuff and showing it off
