This Tech Dress Will Make You Beautiful Moonlight #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #fashion #DIY

Fashion tech definitely attracts the dreamers, and Snow Yi certainly brings attention to the moon with her billowy white dress. The under-layer hides inward facing LEDs that cast light downward, mimicking the glow of moonlight. The surprise element is a sensor that detects the posture of the wearer, allowing the light to be altered in the dress, much like the moon phases. Although the sensor is not described, it could be a flex sensor or an accelerometer/compass sensor. The details of gathered cotton and lace give the dress a vintage feel, while the uneven hemline suggests the contemporary. The silver shoes add a nice touch of reflection for the finished piece. Snow, a student of Hongvik University, certainly put a lot of time into the project, and I’m happy to report her work was recently honored with a Korea Creative Award. I’d also like to acknowledge the magical video created by Lee Tae Don (DJ Wailer). It’s apparent the school fosters collaboration by the interesting projects Snow has been posting on her Vimeo page, so be sure to give them a look.

If you are interested in creating wearable tech that is responsive, definitely check out our learning guide on FLORA Sensors. FLORA is our microcontroller that can be stitched or soldered and it has a great selection of sensors that can react to environment (like light), as well as movement. There are so many possibilities of what you might create, from jackets that make sounds when touched to slippers that light up at night. Whether you are looking to prototype the practical or construct your next cosplay, this mighty microcontroller will become your best friend. Have fun creating!


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.
