Enjoy this easy to assemble and customize wearable with no soldering!
Wearable electronics clothing and accessories continue to remain very popular with designers and fashion lovers alike. Adafruit has featured a great number of wearable projects. Many of them have required sewing skills, electronic skills or both.
Bright Wearables is a recent company that has designed a board which interfaces with a BBC micro:bit or Adafruit CLUE board. The Bright Board may be incorporated into one’s own designs or paired with a number of backpack and handbag styles specifically designed to highlight the multicolored, programmable LEDs and the board’s display.
This project pairs a Bright Wearables crossbody bag and Bright Board with the Adafruit CLLE to provide a colorful, changeable picture display surrounded by lights. It would look great shopping, socializing or for nightlife.
This project is easy for all ages (younger ones with a bit of help on the code copying).
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.
