el wire - cool neon


I was out of town for Jet Townsend's talk on EL wire at Hack Pittsburgh back in April - so I was so happy when he offered a workshop

I've wanted to know how to use electroluminescent wire since I first saw pictures of costumes and clothing incorporating it. You can buy it in pre-cut lengths, all soldered and ready to connect to a driver or sequencer, but it's just expensive enough that I wasn't ready to buy some until I knew more about it. After a great combination of lecture and demo and hands-on (where I soldered some to a connector), I've already got a project in mind for my aqua EL wire which now is ready to go, and I know where I can get whatever I need for anything I can imagine next.
