Fiber optic dress communicates brainwaves #WearableWednesday

High School student Grace wrote in to share her awesome fiber optic brainwave dress with us – very cool! Thanks so much for sharing Grace! She writes:

For my high school science and engineering project, I made a piece of wearable technology that visually communicates the wearer’s brainwaves. In other words, I made a dress that changes colors according to the wearer’s attention and meditation levels. I used optic fibers and RGBLEDs to illuminate the colors on the dress. I designed this dress after a flapper dress from the 1920’s. To get the brainwave data onto my Arduino, I hacked a MindFlex headpiece. I love all your tutorials; they inspired me to make wearable technology.

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
