Maker Fair NYC: Fabric.it

Despina Papadopoulos and Zach Eveland at Maker Faire NYC showed off Fabrick.it, a set of sewable and snapable electronic modules for creating interactive fashions and wearable prototypes. The fabrick.it collection includes a removable, rechargeable Coin Cell Battery Brick, x-LED Brick with built-in resistor, and a Snap Connector Brick which makes connections fast and easy. The modules are connected with a washable and sewable 3-wire conductive fabric ribbon.

I would like to use this technology with my students. I talked to you at etech conf. How could I get started? I need to get inexpensive kits, thought I could have them create, do fashion show while students tape it and then edit to give them something different to do on the computer. Can you help?
