Lüme Fashion Collection with NeoPixels! #WearableWednesday

We are big fans of #WearableWednesday and Adafruit in general. We wanted to share our project, Lüme. It is a mini collection which brings together practical garments with wearable electronics. The pieces are made to be easy to wear day to day, the electronics can be easily removed and attached so the garment can actually be washed! We used your LPD8806 and Neopixel Strips in the pieces. Each piece has a micro controller, Bluetooth module, and LiPo which is controlled via a mobile app that we also put together. This enables the garment to be driven from any of the cell phone’s sensors. Currently the app allows for the control of color, pattern, and even taps into the microphone and GPS of the phone.
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.
