Figure A: The Turn Signal Biking Jacket

This tutorial will show you how to build a jacket with turn signals that will let people know where you’re headed when you’re on your bike. We’ll use conductive thread and sewable electronics so your jacket will be soft, wearable, and washable when you’re done. Enjoy!

A version of this tutorial is also on my website at www.makezine.com/go/turnsignaljacket.
