Clothing app development opportunity: Anduino and LilyPad

The simplest way to experiment may be with one of the Anduino chips embraced by the Maker community. The LilyPad chipset is already designed to be sewn into clothes. Just add LEDs and software.

The first adopters may be people who want to program their clothes to change color or patterns to music, mood, or, say, a command sent by an ad company that purchased space on your sweatshirt. These apps will communicate with people near us, and they will enable a whole new twist to the fashion industry, with artists uploading new patterns and wearers swapping them. People wouldn't ask where you bought that shirt; they would just download the pattern from you right there. Heck, you might even get a commission.
