This maker designed an interactive LED-lit dress inspired by Katniss Everdeen’s

Inspired by Katniss Everdeen’s burning dress from the Hunger Games series, Cindy Li set out to create her own version that uses fabric-attached LEDs to both simulate fire when movement is detected and illuminate in other ways when a certain button is pressed. This light-up dress was based around two development boards: a Circuit Playground Bluefruit from Adafruit that handles […]

This Arduino device can detect which language is being spoken using tinyML

Although smartphone users have had the ability to quickly translate spoken words into nearly any modern language for years now, this feat has been quite tough to accomplish on small, memory-constrained microcontrollers. In response to this challenge, user Enzo decided to create a proof-of-concept project that demonstrated how an embedded device can determine the language currently being spoken […]
