Movie: CuteCircuit on smart textiles and digital fashion #WearableWednesday

Dezeen and MINI frontiers teamed up to make this great video about wearables brand CuteCircuit. Check out more here.

Dezeen and MINI Frontiers: Francesca Rosella of interactive fashion brand CuteCircuit claims advances in digital “smart” fabrics will revolutionise the fashion industry, allowing us to download new styles for our clothes rather than buying new garments.

“We are living in a digital future, so we do not need to sell 10,000 skirts,” says Rosella. “We could sell 500 skirts, but then could sell thousands of patterns that you download to your skirt.”

By embedding nanotechnology into fabrics, we can create “smart textiles” that are conductive, or even computational, Rosella explains.

“Some fabric that you can imagine 50 years ago was just a stretch knit, now through nanotechnology can be coated with particles of silver or gold to become a conductive fabric, which we can use instead of wires,” she says. “There are other fabrics that can do some kind of computation.”

Thousands of tiny micro LEDs can be woven into such fabrics to create garments that can change pattern or colour instantly.

“All of a sudden, these surfaces that you’re wearing, these textiles, become alive,” says Rosella. “They allow you to express yourself, suiting your mood and the situation you’re in with your friends.”

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!



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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.
