Biofabricate, Growing A Better Future #WearableWednesday

via FashNerd

We are big fans of Suzanne Lee. She is the material designing superstar who has brought our attention to components made out of yeast, algae, animal cells and bacteria. Founder of Biofabricate, an organization dedicated to finding naturally-sourced materials, Lee is also chief creative officer for Modern Meadow, a New Jersey-based startup that is not shy about showing us another way to live a sustainable life. More recently they unveiled Zoa, a bio-leather made from fermented yeast for apparel and accessories.

Wanting to know more about the work that the Lee and her team do at Biofabricate, we got the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ straight from the horse’s mouth.

“We’re entering a new Material Age. It is driven by creativity, innovation, and environmental responsibility. We are beginning to build materials using living systems.

Biofabrication, originally a biomedical definition, today imagines a world of material manufacture where future consumer products are designed and grown harnessing biological organisms.

This is a new design paradigm centred on cultivating materials with living cells. Organisms such as yeast, bacteria, fungi, algae and mammalian cells are fermented, cultured and engineered to synthesize natures materials but with new functional and aesthetic properties.

They share one key element: life.”

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.
