The Tech to Wear When You Want to Be a Melting Glacier #WearableWednesday

Glacial

This is a startling headpiece designed by the same duo, Birce Özkan and Betty Quinn, that created a brain controlled butterfly skirt. As you can tell, I’m pretty excited about the climate change theme with this fashion and discovered it on The Creator’s Project. It’s called Glacial and the wearer experiences the sensation of melting through this mound of illuminated plastic canvas and cellophane. NeoPixels change their frequency and luminosity, so there is first a feeling of intense glowing all around that gradually diminishes to a dark shell.

Notice the beautiful geometric folds in the fabric. I also like how this piece uses light to signify warming and to show the beauty of ice. I’m sure there is a feeling of disappointment for the wearer as the lights begin to fade, and there lies the magic of Birce and Betty’s work. Bringing together nature and fashion allows people to feel closer to the environment, and this feeling is the only way we are going to make better lifestyle decisions. Here’s to more fashion that connects our world! Do you have an idea for a costume or fashion that would connect to nature, but don’t know the first thing about lights or sensors? Then you should check out Getting Started With Adafruit FLORA. This book makes electronics easy to understand and has great ideas for incorporating sensors with the FLORA microcontroller. FLORA is stitchable and solderable making it very flexible and the book contains projects with code ready to go. So, no excuses—time to get making!

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, 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.
