LilyPad Arduino - Microcontroller for Textiles

A quick update for the technically interested. Arduino released a microcontroller, that is suited for "Smart Clothes": the LilyPad.

Still I don't know if I should like or dislike electronics directly attached to textiles. But to see it in action, you can check out one first project made my Rebecca Stern.

Aren't the electronic parts getting hot!?

The only component on there that would get even slightly warm is that 5V regulator. I only give it between 7 and 9 volts, so it really doesn't get that warm; certainly not enough to make it a fire hazard. Thanks for showing my project!
