HackSpace no. 4: Wearables Cover Feature
For issue number 4 of HackSpace Magazine, I wrote a massive feature article on getting started with wearables. It's packed with information on how to build for the human body, from design concepts to choosing batteries and microcontrollers.
The article also includes a gallery of inspiring makers and their mind-blowing work in wearables. Free PDF of the issue available here.
In this guide for Adafruit, I show how to build a reusable manicure with NeoPixels. This project looks great when photographed, and is perfect for adding tech drama to a photoshoot or cosplay. Follow the guide here.
In this tutorial for issue no. 8 of HackSpace, I show how to make an LED color sensing bag using Adafruit NeoPixels and Circuit Playground Express. It’s a quick and easy build that’s great for beginners. Download the full PDF here!
