Artist Designs Steampunk-Style Masks #WearableWednesday
Dmitriy Bragin makes these super rad mech/steampunk/cyborg masks. Via My Modern Met:
Although Bragin’s work looks like it’s cast from bronze or other metal, it’s an illusion. It’s the work of acrylic paint that’s layered and brushed to add the illusion of weight and age to them. This material of choice actually makes the masks much lighter and easy to wear, allowing the wearer to slip into a retro-futuristic character anytime that they please.
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.
