Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern 8/28/2013 – LIVE
Join Becky Stern and friends every week as we delve into the wonderful world of wearables, live on YouTube at 2pm ET on Wednesdays. We’ll answer your questions, announce a discount code for the Adafruit store, and explore wearable components, techniques, special materials, and projects you can build at home! Ask your wearables questions in the comments, and if your question is featured, you’ll be entered to win the show giveaway, which this week is 1 meter of NeoPixel strip!
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.

I was wondering what issues you have noticed caused by heat generated from the various devices used in wearable tech (not to mention batteries). Is there such a thing as heat-dissipation fabrics or are there good heat-proof fabrics that you would recommend using? Possible other ways to protect the user from heat?
What are the make and model of the shoes used in the Firewalker video? Thanks!
@Nate, they’re Van’s OTW Allomar sneakers– there’s a link to them in the shoe tutorial (tools & supplies page)!
