Nayana Malhotra loves GIFs. Loves them. When she’s not designing new fashions, she’s filling her Tumblr with GIF after GIF. Now, the GIF-loving designer has figured out how to merge the two. Her new fashion experiment, Neurocouture, combines projection-mapping and brainwave detection to let people literally clothe themselves in their favorite animated files.
Debuting as part of VFiles’ show at New York Fashion Week, Neurocouture is a projection-mapped parka hooked up to consumer-grade EEG devices. A nearby computer is programmed to detect certain brainwave patterns, then translate them into an animated GIF—which is then projected onto the parka as a sort of living animated texture.

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.
