E-Textile Kits from Fay Shaw #WearableWednesday

Fay Shaw’s E-Textile kits & more on MAKE:

Seattle-based crafter and engineer Fay Shaw, founder of bitwise E-textiles, is bringing both her charming light-up plush kits and her experience as a woman engineer and maker to the Maker Faire Bay Area.

Fay will be showcasing her e-textiles work at Ωmaterials, a hands-on booth where Faire-goers can play with a variety of soft circuit and wearable technology projects and even make their own in periodic workshops. (By the way, organizer Ally Seeley is still looking for more exhibitors and workshop leaders to join the Ωmaterials team, so contact her if you are interested.) Fay’s kits, including a firefly, luna moth, jelly fish, and (in-progress) pair of hearts, are currently available online and will also be sold on site at the Faire at the Metrix Open Hardware Alliance booth. Each kit includes felt, thread, and stuffing as well as and LED, photoresistor, resistor and battery pack. The photoresistor makes the circuit light sensitive, so the felt creatures glow when you cup them in your hands or take them into a dark space.


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


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.
