How to Be a Walking Twitter Billboard #WearableWednesday

Hacking hats is really becoming a sport these days and this one by Chris Rhees caught my attention, not only for the fun look, but also for the humorous video. The hat uses an Arduino Yun and has the ability to display Tweets on its LED strip. It looks like fabric was also used to camouflage the LEDs, so the scrolling glow of letters seems to appear from nowhere—nice touch! Chris is a member of Tinkersmiths, a makerspace in Charlottesville, Virginia doing some cool work. So, if you are in the area, you should definitely check out their meetups. If you aren’t in the area, you can still make an awesome hat. Check out our learning guide on Guggenhat, a hat that uses Bluetooth so you can control NeoPixel strips with your phone or tablet. It’s great for theme parties and elections, or those times when you want to impress someone with a sentimental message. What would you want to say with a hat?

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!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
