Micah Scott is an artist, designer, engineer, activist, and all around badass woman! She designed the very popular fadecandy board in collaboration with Adafruit as well. Below is a video of ladyada and Micah talking about the product:

Check out all of Adafruit’s posts about Micah here.

Here’s the bio from Micah’s site:

Micah spent her childhood making the languages and worlds of technology her own, as an alternative to the isolation of suburban life and gender dysphoria. She followed this path to a career in the software industry, then a second career in art. Now she explores the boundaries between technology, society, and creative expression, using her unique perspective to try and help illuminate what makes us human.

Micah’s work focuses on applying new media techniques with a careful eye to the details of how the underlying technologies work. She often creates new technologies for a particular project, and she prefers not just using the technology to tell a story but making the technology itself and our relationship to it part of the story.

Her recent interests include interactive light sculpture, control loops, emergent behavior, unconventional human interfaces, therapeutic art, abstract impressionism, and making art accessible for everyone.

Micah currently holds 6 patents. Check out her technical blog here.



Adafruit 608-1

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.
