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.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
