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!


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.
