Checkout Casey's new tutorial on creating LilyFlyer - a kite with accelerometer controlled LEDs. The LilyPad based LilyFlyer is an awesome example of truly embedded electronics.

    Reminds me of something I did in high school! I stuck a bunch of Christmas lights on a kite just to see what it would look like. Wound up creating a rash of UFO sightings.

    • We thought about stopping in Roswell on a road trip to give them a show. But we rolled in at 1am, stopped three times to find the right hotel, we were delirious and there was no wind...
      Maybe next time.
