Thanks to Alayna for writing in about this neat body suit! Read more here (video coming soon!).
This is our project titled The BodiMusik Suit.
It is a body suit made for the musician Nona Hendryx. The suit is a one piece spandex dance suit and most of the components are adafruit. The suit uses conductive fabric as triggers. The arms are running an LED sequence
from a Gemma and another set of leds on the leds is connected to an adafruit microphone. The programming is loaded onto 2 Floras and 1 Arduino Fio which also use a BlueSmirf bluetooth chip to communicate.
The suit was designed to be used with Ableton live, so all of the programming was done in Arduino and Max, and imported into Ableton as a Max for Live instrument for ease of use.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
