It’s a Party in my Umbrella #WearableWednesday

UmbrellaSpeak

We’ve seen LED’s in umbrellas, but now there’s speakers in umbrellas. This frame holds 10 mini speakers for a unique sound experience according to PSFK. Crafted by Dmitry Morozov, “Anywhere” has the potential to make a rainy day into a fun jaunt.

It’s an early stage design that experiments with the different ways that a personal sound system could be integrated into everyday objects. The device uses optical relays, an Arduino Uno microcontroller, and a micro SD wav player to tie everything together.

So far many wearables tend to be awkward. Once clad in waterproof material, this umbrella could combine the experience of a walkman with the grace of a rain protector. Then, the bigger question will be how people handle the busy sidewalks. Perhaps an app will work Pandora style to analyze the umbrellas around you so you can align with the music you enjoy. It’s a curious problem, but it could lead to some interesting artistic projects, including a concert of umbrellas. Speaking of projects, you can add some vibes to your favorite everyday object with an Arduino. Just check out our tutorial on the Wave Shield.


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.
