If you happen to be at SXSW this week and have a gap in your schedule on Monday, head over to the Technology and Fashion session which aims to “show the language of art and design expressed through the intertwining of
technology and fashion”. My friend Sheridan Martin will be there along with a dress she co-created – you may have seen it around these parts – The Printing Dress.
Sheridan shares the session with Alison Lewis, founder of Agent of Presence, Janet Hansen, Chief Fashion Engineer at Enlighted Designs Inc., and Ping Fu, Founder & CEO of Geomagic Inc.
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.
