Project Runway takes on wearable electronics

Project Runway contestants used “lighting technology” in the latest episode, taking a visit to Barbizon lighting company (mainly for film/TV) to pick out blinky magnetic LEDs, EL wire, LED strip lighting, blacklight tape, and a bevy of other potentially gaudy lighting options. I thought the contestants did an excellent job especially considering they were all quite intimidated by the idea of using electricity in their designs for the first time. I only wish the show producers would have brought them to Adafruit, where our EL wire, tape, panel, slow-fade LEDs and RGB LED tape would have looked fantastic on the runway, and our tutorials could have put the designers on the fast track to success. Maybe next time! What did you think of the challenge and results this week? Leave a note in the comments.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
