This Is What Happens When You Combine Tech with Piercing #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #art #nailart
So I didn’t know piercing nails was a thing, but this manicure with LEDs spotted on Teen Vogue definitely gets interest. Park Eunkyung (@nail_unistella) decided to hack clear nails by drilling holes and adding LED earrings. Usually when I see someone with a drill near their finger I’m concerned, but since these are faux nails, there’s just the matter of making sure a real nail is not harmed. While this style may make your fingertips harder to use, it does create a sparkly signage effect, which is what this nail-ista loves.
I would actually like to see a tiny version of this manicure using surface-mount LEDs or LED sequins, silver paint and tiny button cell batteries. Can the battery fit under the nail? Someone please give this a try and report back with photos! Our LED sequins come in a variety of gemstone colors that are perfect for the holidays, so you can match your dress or go over-the top and match your ugly sweater.
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.
