Jeri Ellsworth with LED eyelashes by Diana Eng

jeri-ellsworth-eyelashes

At tonight’s traditional paella maker dinner at NYSCI in Queens, I spotted Jeri Ellsworth sporting some beautiful LED eyelashes (and necklace, and dress). Diana Eng was making magic with SMT LEDs on many people– I spotted MAKE editor Gareth Branwyn’s bald head covered in blue dots, and even Matt Richardson had an LED mustache. Ah, the fun that is Maker Faire… hope to see you there! I’ll be with the Dueling Mechanical Bulls by The Madagascar Institute (near the Diet Coke & Mentos stage).


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.

  1. Thats pretty dang awesome. Love to learn the techniques for doing the eyelashes and skin mounted tech (SMT). I’ll guess the eyelashes built and then pasted on (ala false eyelashes)
    That would be an awesome kit for you to offer… I’d get a bunch of em for our Maui Source festival.

  2. Any idea if there are build instructions for LED eyelashes online somewhere?

    thanks,
    drew
