Children and a parent or grandparent combined familiar materials such as fabric, leather, metal and feathers with sensors, computer chips and light-emitting diodes. They created hats, necklaces, belts and bracelets that lit up or made sounds when near partnering pieces. They also fashioned computer programs to detect the environmental triggers and effect responses.
