Όταν φοράμε μία μάσκα προσώπου είναι δύσκολο να επικοινωνήσουν με τα στόματά μας καλυμμένα. Στο συγκεκριμένο εργαστήριο θα κατασκευάσουμε μία μάσκα που θα ξεπερνά αυτό το εμπόδιο δημιουργώντας ένα φωτεινό στόμα από led που θα κινείται και θα “μιλάει”. Θα χρησιμοποιήσουμε ένα arduino, μια καινοτόμο τεχνολογία που χρησιμοποιείται κατά κόρον σε καλλιτεχνικά διαδραστικά έργα, ψηφιακά LEDs και αισθητήρες για να φτιάξουμε το δικό μας wearable αντικείμενο.
