MAKr Exhibition Opens @CRUXSpace Friday in Philadelphia #WearableWednesday

Cruxknit

It’s Design Week in Philly which means everyone in love with architecture, fashion and design is roaming the streets to get their fill. As they say, “Winter is coming”, so it’s a frenzy of the best kind. Kim Brickley and Andrew Cameron Zahn have brought together a colorful group of artists at CRUX Space for MAKr: high design and fashion meet technology. This will be an ADHD paradise with making, models and blinky glam. Andrew Dahlgren will be presenting his hacked retro programmable knitting machines and his array of coded skein art.

CruxTara

Tara Webb, a resident at The Hacktory, will be presenting her new circus inspired neck cuff collection. This one is the “Animal Trainer Ruff”, and you can see an Adafruit Flora in the pic.

Crux3D

Jewelry fans are going to be loving Doug Bucci’s 3D printed cascading spirals that are based on data from his own body. Trust me that you won’t guess what kind of data.

Cruxcollar

Enrica Ferrero has been doing some interesting work with fasteners, and this button activated LED pointed collar is a great example. Of course, I wouldn’t be dropping all these breadcrumbs unless there was a bit of a surprise. I’ll be there with some work that you recognize from Adafruit’s tutorials, like my Jewel Hair Stick. I’ll also be unveiling a new piece, and the only hint you get is that it mimics a colorful natural phenomenon. So, come out to CRUX Space and join me for some wearable tech fun.

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!


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
