ST. VITO: This Dance Performance Looks Like a Frenzy of Tech #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #art #dance

ST VITO Media Art/Dance

LEDs can be mystical, especially in the case of this fusion of media, dance and wearable techProject, ST VITO (Sensor Technology Visual Interactive Touch Orchestra) uses costumes spiked with electronics to draw the audience and encourage participation. According to their Facebook there are many possibilities.

We have developed tiny wearable synthesizers, which detect changes in performers’ electrical skin resistance over their entire bodies. When the dancer or actor wearing this device is touched, their body produces tones, music loops, or sound effects. The pitch is controlled by varying the touch pressure, transforming the performers’ and audiences’ bodies into musical instruments.

They’ve also added LEDs into the mix creating “screen suits” that are capable of simplistic blips or more extravagant full body visuals. Although we have seen interactive Tron Suits, these costumes have a more organic draped look, which works well for a variety of performances. In fact, ST VITO works collaboratively with other artists, performers and VJs to create interactive art. Consider it a tool for realizing new work.

The most important aspect of the group’s work is the fact that they encourage the audience to participate through touching the performer. This can not only result in some interesting loops on the fly, but it also engages people that usually won’t stray from the comfort of their chairs. Are you curious about creating an interactive costume? Check out our learning guide for the Sparkle Skirt Playground. It’s an LED color show that triggers with your movement and it uses our new easy-to-learn Circuit Playground microcontroller. Start here and then expand to creating your own code based on specific movements. Choreography becomes you!


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, 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.
