Light up your body with temporary tattoo circuits #WearableWednesday
Make has a roundup of a bunch of tattoo circuit projects featuring lots of amazing technology!
Tattoo technology has been improved in many ways over the last few decades. The tattoo guns are more accurate, the ink is more durable and vibrant, and the artists themselves are exploring new areas of skill and expression. Now, people who aren’t even what you would typically call a tattoo artist are getting in on the fun by exploring new areas of temporary tattoos, by designing them to be electronic circuits…
…Chaotic Moon put together this great presentation on how they would use the technology. One thing that stuck out in my mind was the very first example showing how you can easily paint on your own circuits with conductive ink. They do a pretty decent job of mixing the circuits with some aesthetic bits.
Check out some of the other tech tattoos they covered here!
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.
