Barbie's blinky dress

Goli Mohammadi of MAKE says:

A few years ago, we were happy to learn that Barbie’s 125th career (since her inception in 1959) was computer engineer. Not surprisingly, that career was decided entirely by online vote. Computer engineer Barbie came complete with pink glasses, laptop (displaying binary), and cellphone (and blue Bluetooth). Looks like those years of being a computer engineer have gotten her into soft circuits — this year an available accessory is the Digital Dress.

And looks like she finally took a cue from Leah Buechley’s LED Tank Top project that ran in the first issue of CRAFT, in 2006.

  1. Did you know Ms. Barbie was trying to prove the Riemann conjecture when she said “math is hard”?

  2. Maybe it’s just the shape and placement of the heart, but my mind immediately went to the naughty applications.
