Trafo Pop Combines Wearables and Light Painting #WearableWednesday

Trafo Pop is an amazing group of wearable tech, lighting and cyclist enthusiasts in Berlin — cool combo, right?. We’ve covered some of their work before, but they’ve just created a dance performance that combines their wearables with light painting. It’s beautiful and reminds me of a real life version of those old Ipod commercials with the glowing silhouettes.

What’s exciting is that the group has created a software that allows for this real time show of light. So, no special effects or post production were needed to create this video. From the audience perspective, it’s fun to witness because there is a feeling that art is being created before your eyes, and in a moment it disappears again. It goes back to my reasoning of why sensors and interactivity are so exciting — they’re bringing us all back to the moment where we are reminded that we are experiencing life together.

Want to have your own fun moment?  You can explore our guide on Light painting with NeoPixels and Arduino. Don’t forget to buy an extra FLORA and NeoPixels so you can make your own jacket, too. Then you will be tres Trafo Pop. You’re on your own for the dance lessons, though.

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.
