Intel’s “Make it Wearable” Challenge #WearableWednesday
Wearables contest/challenge from Intel, nice to see some Adafruit gear featured in this “futuristic” piece:
Over the next year, Intel will challenge innovators to bring the next wearable technologies to life. Will your idea be one of them? Let’s change the world together. Wearables are taking technology into new realms, making it personal and seamless to use. MAKE IT WEARABLE is a global initiative to inspire ideas and fuel innovation that will evolve this emerging category in exciting new ways.
There are two ways to participate:
Dream big. The VISIONARY track rewards futuristic thinking. We will recognize and support ideas with the potential to shift universal perspective and improve the world in a meaningful way. Challenge boundaries. The DEVELOPMENT track is for concepts that push the limits of what’s possible, balancing creativity with execution. Our incubation process will enable you to generate a refined design and business plan for your invention.
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.
