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. Pitch your project idea via element14′s RoadTest page, and you could be selected to receive your supplies for free! Then during the course of the challenge, we’ll follow your progress in the element14 Arduino community. Enter now– the deadline is July 15th (Monday)!
