I have wanted to play with wearable tech for a while now and this is my first attempt. It combines my interest in hobby electronics with my love of space and shiny things and I would recommend trying this project to anyone who wants some constellation clothing.
My coat shows the constellation Orion and has scientifically accurate star colours and placements. The technology is relatively simple and it was a nice way to pass a few evenings with a needle and conductive thread in hand.
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.
