One of the wearable tech people Kate has met since her move to New York is Daren Guler at Invent-abling. Invent-abling focuses on kits for education to learn more about how technology works. They create their own sewable LEDs, buzzers and sensors with sewable parts.
Kate has assisted with several workshops at the New York Science Hall, as well as made some other small projects such as a LED head band with tilt sensor.
And a RGB shirt where touching the sleeves together turns the LED different colours.
