Design Students Bring Wearable Technology to UNT Opera’s Don Giovanni #WearableWednesday @UNT #Fashion #3DPrinting #Design #Theater
Departments are coming together at the University of North Texas. Design students from a wearable tech class are creating the costumes for a theater production. Via D Magazine:
The University of North Texas Opera is bringing a new spin to Mozart’s Don Giovanni this weekend in collaboration with the College of Visual Arts and Design.
Fashion design students, alumni, and faculty from the College of Visual Arts and Design have been working tirelessly together to incorporate something else new to the show—digital fabrication.
“There are a lot of fringe technologies that are starting to impact the apparel industry, and the goal is to create opportunities so that the students are flexible and prepared to integrate and work with the scientists and engineers designing those materials,” Trippeer says. “This is just a way forward for students to be introduced to those things.”
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
