This week in our Community, Florian Satzinger (Paperwalker) shared his wonderfully imaginative designs.

My brain kind of automatically produces certain shapes and colours which helps me a lot to save time and energy in visual development processes. On the contrary, working with intuition only easily can lead one to lack variety. So it became extremely important to me to constantly influence or inform my visual development work by adopting ideas from all kinds of references from the fields of industrial design, architecture, fine arts, photography, engineering etc.(read more)

On the blog this week, we shared Ian from Receiving’s Mom’s marvelous Mardi Gras Parade costume that she made with Neopixels and Gemma!

A note from Jessica:

One of the best things about working at Adafruit is sharing open source electronics with friends and family members who might not have known about all the cool projects you can make with them. Ian from the Adafruit receiving department did just that and he shared with us this photo of his mom in her Mardi Gras Parade costume made with NeoPixels and a Gemma. It looks great! You can check out more photos and read more about her parade group here. Below is a close up of the NeoPixels in action! (read more)
