I really like the concept of having a twinkling background in this video.
Animated textiles by Meg Grant.

She made folded patterns that open and close when you power the motor. Really simple, elegant, and tasteful. It shows an alternative to animating textiles that don't use nitinol wire (and are simpler to get going). There are more examples on the site, but this was my fave. (Via Syuzi)

Grace Kim, of Soft Electric created this delightful hand knitted sessile handbag. "The tiny LEDs alternately fade in and out, creating a gently pleasing light," in this exploration of merging natural forms with technology.
I really enjoyed the attention to detail in this bag, like the tiny "barnacles" applied to it. Très bien.

I've been traveling a lot with my backpack, sometimes putting too much in it, which is bad for my back. Taking a cue from this weight-sensing tote on Instructables, I decided to build one using schemer.
With the schemer web interface on my iPhone, I can quickly calibrate it for my needs, or make it do random flashing patterns anytime I want, without breaking out a USB cable or anything.
The 3 volt felt battery holder is eye-catching too, no?
