When You Need a Glam Audio Meter in a Hurry #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #DIY

It’s always exciting to see a successful build, and this time it’s our LED Ampli-Tie. This one is by Tim Storsved who is a maker and lover of physics, although by the sound of his video, he may also be a well paid voice-over artist. I will say right now that I’m seeing some straight stitching lines with the conductive thread and the Neopixels look superb on the dark tie. Tim also decided to opt for the clip-on tie for those sudden award ceremonies; the press won’t notice what’s not under the collar. If you would like to get ready for your next big ceremony with plenty of shine, check out our learning guide for the Ampli-Tie. It uses our FLORA microcontroller, which has become a staple for wearable tech. It’s Arduino friendly and allows for stitching or soldering. The addition of a mic is the secret sauce for the Neopixels, allowing them to react to sound. So, get stitching before you get caught with a bland tie! We are here to share your video success story.

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!

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.
