Becky will be showing off a blinky wearable electronics project on Maker Camp next Monday! She’ll be kicking off Art & Design week with LED ruffle shoe clips live on Google+ Hangouts On-Air at 11am PT/2pm ET:
Breathe some life into your closet with some high-tech hacking and haute couture imagination. Becky Stern has been adding electronics to craft and design projects since she was a kid, and she’s here to help you make wearables that don’t just look smart–they are smart, with chips and circuits stitched right in. Plus, “Fashion’s Queen of DIY” Erica Domesek will give some tips for customizing and personalizing your crafty fashion style. Daily Project: LED Shoe Clips
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.
