Photos from Saturday’s FLORA workshop with @EyebeamNYC #WearableWednesday
Last Saturday I ran an introductory workshop on wearable electronics and the FLORA microcontroller, as part of the Computational Fashion series at Eyebeam, in partnership with the Visible Futures lab at SVA. Particpants got hands on with Adafruit projects and then stitched their first NeoPixels!
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.
