Would a rose by any other name shine as bright? If we are talking about an actual living rose then, no, probably not. This it the Silk Flower LED, a common cathode 5mm RGB LED surrounded by an organza-type silk to give it the shape of a beautiful blooming flower. This Silk Flower LED is the same one used in the 21st Century Fashion Kit and can be used to add a bit of color and flair to your next e-textile project.
