How to Wear the Gratification of Applause #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #art #fashion #arduino

Studies have already shown that social media and email are a lot like slot machines—you keep checking them hoping for a payoff. That’s why Zoe Mahony’s Applause Collar is the perfect blast from the past. Although it was shown at the Haptic InterFace show in 2014 it is even more relevant today. Beautiful macramed cords circle the neck and cascade down the body like a proud cape. Hidden within the rows of knots are white LEDs which will only display with the noise of hand claps. There is an elegance to the piece which gently mocks our need for attention. It is an endless loop as the more people discover the light show, the more they want to applaud. Loops are the theme here, with cord, circuit, applause and approval. Although the parts aren’t listed, I imagine an Arduino with a mic which triggers the LEDs. It is the fashionable applause meter and I’m so glad that it has emerged again on Vimeo. If you are interested in making a project that reacts to sound, check out our learning guide for the VU Meter Baseball Hat. You can transform any piece of clothing into a sound reactive light show! Warning: You will get applause.


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.
