3D printed and modeled necklace with polished and thermochromatic plastic. Embedded electronics. STATEMENT explores the nature of fashion and accessories: what they say about the wearer, the consciousness of the wearer of these statements, fashion protocol and the beauty process and preparation. When the wearer touches the main motif, the necklace makes a statement.
Headpiece that pumps thoughts the user may or may not currently experience. The notion is to incur am emotional space that is more conducive to low self-esteem, second guessing and what it may be like to experience some forms of mental illness through the aid of a computer. At what point is the user an emotional robot, and can this state be triggered through the aid of a computer? Personal Thoughts is an attempt a cyborg-type lifestyle and the osmosis that can occur between machine and user with constant interaction between the two forms. The robot voice attempts to enter human space through inflection, and the user attempts to enter robotic space by wearing the piece and contributing their skin as a trigger.

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.
