As part of the Computational Fashion initiative, Eyebeam is hosting a panel and demo night exploring emerging opportunities in fashion and wearable technology. The panel, “Fashion and the Body”, will feature a selection of emerging fashion thought leaders and makers, including FIT curator Ariele Elia, designer Titania Inglis, and Computational Fashion Fellow Keren Oxman in a spirited discussion moderated by Sabine Seymour. The conversation will cover possibilities and obstacles for fashion designers looking to incorporate technology in their work, as well as consideration for how/if wearable tech can actually be fashionable.
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.
