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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
