You get jargon-free primers and lots of how-to projects that will have you making - and even wearing - functional works of art. Written for a broad audience, this book demonstrates how to blend sewing and assembly techniques with traditional electronics to assemble simple circuits using conductive thread, solder joints for snaps, and switches for buttons. With the sewing machine as a viable substitute for the soldering iron, you can craft a new generation of objects that are interactive, quirky, and fashion-conscious.Author Syuzi Pakhchyan, a seasoned artist, roboticist, and teacher, explains how to use smart materials such as thermo- and photochromatic inks that change color by touch or sunlight, magnetic and conductive paints, polymorph plastic, fiber optics, and more.In "Fashioning Technology", you'll find: an invaluable reference section that breaks down the materials, components, and tools with clear, concise explanations and photos; a wide range of projects, including electronic accessories, interactive plush toys, and color-changing blinds, all using diverse crafting techniques; techniques for seasoned crafters interested in incorporating simple electronics into their own projects; and methods for makers proficient in electronics who are looking for unconventional ways to create novel projects.Each project encourages you to personalize and customize using your own designs, materials, and craft skills. "Fashioning Technology" translates traditional electronics into fun, fashionable interactive projects for the geek, fashionista, and the craft aficionado alike. Now you really can be the flashiest dresser in town.

Her television debut aired on January 1, 2007 and will be followed by the another scheduled for the Fall of 2007. For the launch of Craft magazine, Syuzi designed and helped create an environmental installation at the 2006 Maker Faire. At the Makers Faire, her work was featured as a "Special Exhibition" where she taught workshops on how to create the Wearable Light Bracelet and sew electronics. Syuzi's projects have been published in numerous publications and books, including Shojo-Beat, a manga publication, Craft magazine, and in the Crafter Culture Handbook authored by Amy Spencer. On weekends, she teaches a robotics class to children between the ages of 9-14 at Art Center College of Design. She also occasionally holds workshops in Los Angeles on crafting electronics. Monthly, she writes articles for Shojo-Beat, covering topics that range from fashion, technology and the latest must-have gadgets.

SparkLab is a novel platform that creates a space for the cultural production of technologically crafted artefacts. Her designs explore and encourage ludic activities that celebrate the quirky and speculative and reflect personal experiences and cultural narratives. Syuzi has the unique ability to make the complex simple, translate learning into entertainment, and use technology as a tool to inspire creativity.

Book is full of very interesting projects with good step by step instructions and photos for each project.
I first came across Syuzi on TV, she was on Craftlab (HGTV). I decided to try one of the projects she demonstrated on the program. It was the "Rock N Roll" speakers, she covers them in this book starting on page 149. The speaker project was fun to do and turned out well. I actually made the speakers for my Grandson.
If you enjoy crafting are willing to learn simple electronics, Syuzi will get you hooked on "smart crafting". Every time I think of a new project, I now find myself trying to incorporate some form of electronics into my work.
I am definitely impressed with Syuzi's book, she has a gift for teaching.
There are plenty of projects in this book to get you started and if you're half-way creative and imaginative you should be able to springboard off them to come up with your own ideas.
I wish more instructional manuals and books were written as clear and understandable as this one.
