As part of an e-textile research project for Smart Textile Services (CRISP), designers Eunjeong Jeon, Kristi Kuusk, Martijn ten Bhömer and Jesse Asjes have developed a therapeutic wearable to treat a variety of physical ailments, including pain, sports injuries, and bone density loss.
Aptly called “Vibe-ing,” the wearable is embedded with circuits that can sense touch and actuate a vibrating motor on specific pressure points on the body.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
