This Tech Dress Will Make You Popular With Drones #WearableWednesday #Wearabletech #3Dprinting #drones

TranSwarm Drone Dress

I remember seeing this curious posting on Facebook from designer Maartje Dijkstra:

Looking for a pro female high fashion model, based in Berlin, that is up for a big fashion performance half of December…dealing with flying objects.

Well, it is all making sense now as she has just placed third in FashionFusion Berlin with her TranSwarm Entities dress. It’s a 3D printed beauty, with hidden drones ready to swarm.

The dress capitalizes on Maartje’s 3D printing style, which includes manually forming the web-like threads that bring a skeletal look. In fact, she created a “Black Drone Bird” motif for the dress, where the drones appear adorned. The boots also reflect the design and were 3D printed at FabLab Berlin.

Like most of Maartje’s fashion happenings, the dress includes electronic music and projection. The music and programming were done by Newk, who has also collaborated with the designer on other works. This full media integration is something that I find very Berlin-esque and really elevates the excitement by including a team of artists. I think the American fashion industry could certainly do more in this regard. So, thanks, Maartje, Newk and the rest of the creative team for continuing an exciting perspective on what it means to be part of humanity and tech. Wishing you a great new year in the 3D wilderness. For the rest of you, don’t be shy about learning 3D printing skills. If you want a cool addition to the ’80s clothing that’s trending, try printing these Cyberpunk Spikes. They are NinjaFlex soft and illuminated with Neopixels thanks to a GEMMA Microcontroller. The past is the future when it comes to fashion, so have fun creating our own tech style.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, 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.
