Make:” is new type tech magazine to enjoy DIY published in US. Japanese edition team held this event. And Make:’s sister brand is “Craft:” that is featuring the newest creation of craft. We are loving “Craft:” since their birth. So we were very happy to participate in Craft:’s corner of this event.

We made our bags controlled with LilyPad Arduino (kawaii microcontroller board designed for wearables and e-textiles), we were enjoying to succeed blinking our products.
