When You Want Eyes Like a Scrolling Billboard #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #tech #STEM @ins_sant_andreu

Next time you want to attend an event where you need to make a point, these shades may be the perfect accessory. This matrix shade project includes some Bluetooth magic with a phone app that can use speech for text to create the scroll. The app can also run animation sequences, time/day, notifications and weather for the glasses. It’s a fun Arduino hack by students at Institut Sant Andreu, Spain. I’m sending big high-fives to David Bueno, Fabio Sabatino, Florin Catalin and Omar Musa for their awesome work. All I can say is if the students from this school are already doing this kind of work, I can’t wait to see what they do for their careers! If you are a STEM teacher wanting to do similar work with your class, you should check out our learning guide on Macetech RGB LED Shades. You can hack these glasses using our Adafruit Feather w/Bluefruit LE and a mic to get some fun effects, including controlling pixels with a cell phone and having them react to sound. I wish school had been this fun back in my day—go STEM!

Adafruit Glasses Hack

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, 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.
