Last night I made some wires just to show that 1) my idea does work, and 2) and secondly I want to stop people nicking my wooly things. I was origianally planning on the wooly things reacting the the RFID reader, but as they run on the same serial port channel there seems to be some interference going on. I'm not sure processing can read and write to serial ports simultaneously either. So I'm now using the wires to hook up the fun LEDs and stuff to a power source. The arduino program is a simple one that blinks the LEDs and makes the vibe boards pulse.

Here's me testing a wire I just made using my new arduino board.

Here's everything wired up.
