Anouk Wipprecht is designing cutting edge fashion using her technology background! via iq.intel.com
The experimental designer takes wearables into the future by fusing fashion with robotics and computer technologies, drawing inspiration from pioneering inventors while encouraging young girls to chase their curiosities through art and sciences.
Before taking an assignment at Microsoft… she worked as a “Designer in Residence” at Intel for nine months. Her job involved exploring innovative ways to use Intel Edison technology, designed for adding computer and communications capabilities to almost anything that can be connected to the Internet.
She calls the Spider Dress her most complicated human-system design so far because it required her to plumb the depths of her education and curiosities. Being curious is something she celebrates every day.
Check out the following video as well as Anouk’s vimeo profile to see some of the work that goes into creating such innovative fashion!
October 13th 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” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.
Please promote and share #ALD15 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
