german-born designer moritz waldemeyer has teamed with british milliner philip treacy for london fashion week. the merging of technology and fashion has seen a variety of ambitious head ware pieces gracing the catwalk – the collaboration honoring the master hat designer’s return to the british capital after 12 years for the most hotly anticipated in vogue event.
waldemeyer created two pieces for the show – a full body garment and an illuminated head piece – both informed by the concept of weightlessness as part of the brief for the exhibit. the head piece is characterized by a seamless band of light sweeping around the head with no palpable physical connection to the wearer at all. this effect was realized due to a strategically positioned and custom designed wearable propeller – each blade glowing with LEDs. this means that when the device is in motion the propellers themselves vanish to only leave behind a suspended glowing halo.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
