Wear Your Beating Heart with FLORA #WearableWednesday
Build a badge to show the beat of your heart! This wearable project uses the Polar heart rate sensor, which you wear around your ribcage and it wirelessly transmits heart beats to the receiver chip included in our educational starter pack. The badge can be worn on your clothes or bag, and is held in place by a magnetic pin back. Make the heart-shaped NeoPixel version, or use one of our 8×8 LED matrices with i2c backpack to display your heart rate as a number or make your own bitmap animations. Watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo, and read the complete Heart Rate Badge guide on the Adafruit Learning System to build your own.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
