Becky Stern Q&A on Engadget #WearableWednesday

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 7.52.39 PM

Find out my worst tech habit and favorite GIF on this cheeky Q&A over on Engadget:

Becky Stern is a DIY guru and electronics and textile artist who incorporates technology into everyday objects. She’s Director of Wearable Electronics at Adafruit in New York where she creates how-to’s for projects ranging from LED sneakers to 3D printed unicorn horns to dance-activated LED skirts.

Becky is learning to ride her 1975 Honda CB200 motorcycle, has dressed up like a poop emoji for Halloween, and has a BFA in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design. To learn more about her projects, watch her videos and live show on Adafruit’s YouTube channel.

1. What’s the best tech advice you’ve ever received?

I have learned this same advice from several mentors throughout my life: Creative tools will always change, so it’s not really about what gear you have but rather your ability to execute your vision with what’s available to you. When buying a camera for day-to-day project documentation, for instance, it’s far more practical to choose one that’s small enough to actually carry with you everywhere instead than the top-of-the-line DSLR. Your creative abilities extend far beyond the limits of your technology.
