Rob Faludi and Kate Hartman posted about the protype version of the XBEE Lilypad. The Lilypad is the incredibly small — wearable version — of the Arduino, and to borrow a phrase from a well known advertisment, the XBEE ‘gives it wings!’. Not sure how much power this require through the Lilypad, but I can think of 500 amazing projects this could be used for. Check out the post on Rob’s site to learn more about the direction of the project.
Oh, and when you’re done reading about fun electronic prototypes, you can check out their recipe for a nice glass of Vegan Pork Martini. Yes, I said that right!
