Sally Byers is a textile craftsperson turned electronic artist. We’ve been blown away by her work ever since we first saw her volcano coat with hand-soldered surface mount LED sequins, and have been drooling over her latest NeoPixel creations stitched with conductive thread. Right before Maker Faire NY we managed to get Sally into our studio for some photos (video coming soon) of Sally’s work. Check out the complete photo set on Flickr.
October 14th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas”. We will also be referencing women from history that have made impacts in science and math. Please promote and share #ALD14 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!
