Yes, I'll be skipping this weekends meeting to go to RoboGames.  The 
weekend after I should be there though, and I can bring the choker that 
I have.  If you're interested in building the armatures (the physical 
clothing part), I'd be willing to build the electronics stuff, and we 
can make some good progress together.  I can teach you the electronics 
stuff - it's really not that hard.  Easier in fact than knowing how to 
work a sewing machine :-)
