Wearables Hangout Video! Enter “Get Closer” Challenge by July 15th @element14
If you missed todays Google+ wearable talk with Becky Stern and want to know more about the “Get Closer” Wearables Challenge, or just more about FLORA, watch the video above!
Becky & friends showed off fun wearables projects and answered questions such as:
How many pixels can I chain in sequence with FLORA?
Is FLORA waterproof? How do you wash it?
Can I connect FLORA with GPS to the net so I can track an object in real time? and more…
Inspired to make your own wearables project? The “Get Closer” Wearables Challenge with Adafruit FLORA & element14 is for you! Recruitment is open– apply now for your chance to win a sweet pack of FLORA goodies to build the wearable electronics project of your dreams.
