In this project I am exploring the possibilities of dynamic and interactive body language enhancements. People have, for ages, tried to enhance the messages they send to people around them, with the help of, for example, tattoos or jewelry. But your mood changes constantly, even several times per minute. So I believe these enhancements should be able to change too, constantly. The first piece, the PINECAP, displays porcupine spikes through the top of a cap. These spikes rise or drop depending on the mood of the wearer. This mood is measured by head-gestures, skin-conductivity, body temperature or even a brain-activity interface.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
