Join Becky Stern, Adafruit’s Director of Wearable Electronics, for a challenge kick-off LIVE Google+ hangout on-air!
Learn what wearable electronics is all about and get inspired by a multitude of DIY projects you can build at home!
Submit your “Get Closer” project at element14’s page for your chance to win some cool FLORA gear.
We hope you’ll come away feeling confident and energized to create your own wearables.
What: Live wearables broadcast with Becky Stern & friends at Adafruit
When: Tomorrow July 10, 2pm ET
Where Adafruit’s Google+ page: http://plus.google.com/+adafruit
Submit your questions now and we’ll answer them during the live broadcast!
We’ll even invite a few lucky inquisitors to join us in the hangout, so get your questions in!
We want to know your questions about developing your own DIY wearables, the FLORA platform, working with conductive textiles, and more.
Questions can be posted in the Arduino group on element14, below on the adafruit blog, or on twitter #GetCloser.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
