Get Inspired by These Amazing Tech Dresses by IEEE #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #tech #Arduino

Now that it’s fall you might be wishing for more light, and what better way to bring it than through your clothing. I happened upon the most LED blinged dresses I’ve ever seen on one catwalk thanks to Australia’s Women in Engineering, IEEE La Trobe Student Branch. So, if you are looking for inspiration for your next fashion, look no further. You’ll find LEDs running many different coding patterns, and you’ll also see a variety of placements, from underneath gowns as a matrix to edge trimming strips. There may even be some EL wire in the mix! I noticed some of my faves used different styles of LEDs, allowing for bold and subtle highlights at once. So, get your groove on and grab a pen to start sketching your own design. It’s time to celebrate women in tech, whether it be a pantsuit or mini-skirt. If you want to learn the basics of working with microcontrollers and Neopixels, check out the perfect fall project—an LED Hoodie. It’s got a textile potentiometer so you can change the color of the Neopixels with a little tug. Stay warm and be bright as the weather turns cooler.


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.
