Grissini writes in! His Personal Space Defender built with FLORA:

PT talked about this idea more than a year ago on Ask an Engineer. Adafruit_Support_Bill helped get my code where it needed to be. This project wouldn’t have been possible without the awesome people here(@Adafruit). As always, Thanks for being so AWESOME!!!!

This item uses Flora and a Maxbotix distance sensor to help keep people out of my invisible person space bubble. People a bright visible clue of Flora_Pixels when they invade my bubble. Bill, part of the Adafruit support team, helped me get the pixels to avoid false positives when I am drinking champagne at these fancy black tie events. Saving the blistering, eye shattering LED’s for the rude people who invade my space.

I chose to go ahead a build this now with the advent of Adafruit’s and Element14’s “Get Closer” contest. I don’t want anyone to get closer. This is my anti-entry!


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit!

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!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
