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?
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.
