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…

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.
