This work was exhibited at Gucci’s gallery space in Tokyo. The innovation doesn’t stop with glowing silk, Sputniko is also working with researchers to produce a silk that smells of roses as well as a silk that contains oxytocin called “The Love Silk”. Via Sputniko
This fluorescent silk, developed by researchers at NIAS in 2008, can be made by injecting silkworm eggs with jellyfish or coral DNA. We collaborated with Hosoo, a traditional 1200 years old Nishijin-ori textile manufacturer based in Kyoto, to create a fabric woven from the Glowing Silk. Amy’s dress and shoes are made of this new material and designed by Masaya Kushino.

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.
