This Is What Happens When You Combine Art and Robotics #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #DIY #Arduino #Instructables

This is a video about a robotic helmet that stops tears. Actually this is a video about inventing crazy solutions to problems. No wait, this is a video spoofing the stereotype of a scientist. I discovered this Junie Genius gem on Instructables, and it’s entered into their “First Time Author” contest. There’s a lot of one-liners packed into this project, but underneath there’s solid tech with all the laser-cutting, servo spinning, and Arduino coding that you love. There’s a windshield wiper style eye dryer, a back-patter and a positive message dangler that really make this fun. My favorite trick is using a fixed piece of fishing line to simplify the motor for the back-patting mechanism. If you want a glimpse into the art side, check out Lauren Valley’s site for sculpture, robots and music videos that examine gender and stereotype. Her Junie character is definitely helping to spread robotics to the next generation. If you are looking for a great intro project for wearable robotics, check out our Unicorn Hat With Moving Ears. It’s soft tech powered with a Circuit Playground Express and two micro servos. Have fun discovering how movement can make your projects come to 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.
