When You Want to Move Like Jagger With Tech #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #tech #art
Sometimes you just want something different for dance gear and Ricardo O’Nascimento of Popkalab has certainly created the perfect little accessory with his Dance Light Harness. He recently showed the piece at Wear It Festival in Berlin where I’m sure it created excitement. The city loves a good party and a Neopixel filled harness is bound to attract attention. The LEDs react to movement thanks to an accelerometer and some artistic code.
Ricardo has made another version of the harness that reacts to sound as well for the group Chicks on Speed for an upcoming show. So, it looks like the harness is showing promise. I recently spotted a leather harness worn over a high-waisted dress here in Philly and bras are certainly getting some added straps for interest. The trend is here and LEDs are the perfect match—isn’t it time you got some Neopixels?
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, 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.
