When You Want Your Chakras to Make a Statement #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #DIY #art

Kate Reed is fascinated with Hinduism, particularly chakras or energy focal points in the body that are often associated with meditation, yoga and healing. She created Chakra Fashion using laser-cut plywood to represent the individual chakras including a glorious LED embedded headpiece representing the crown chakra. The LEDs respond thanks to an Arduino and a pulse sensor mounted in the wrist cuff, adding a true sense of energy flow to the ensemble. Kate knew the headpiece would be the focal point.

The crown chakra is said to be the essence of the soul, and is certainly the essence of this piece.

It is interesting that Kate chose to do this elaborate outfit as another one of her projects explores invisibility using clear statues. There are many ways to explore identity and sensors certainly help to make things visible. Ready to experiment with a pulse sensor yourself? Check out our Meditation Trainer learning guide. You can make a helpful device to teach yourself relaxation using a Circuit Playground microcontroller as the base. It’s a fun project that will get the whole family excited. Let us know how it goes exploring your pulse!

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.
