The WELL: Bruce Sterling and Jon Lebkowsky: State of the World 2014.

—> “#1. The 3d printer guys. Just so interesting! Gotta love
them!”

*Well, the 3D crowd did have a pretty good time of it in 2013. Then
their little hobby markets started saturating, and also some cruel
patent-trolling broke out. They’re still doing okay, but the buzz of
2014 has moved to “wearables.” Whatever that is. “Wearables” means
all kinds of stuff. A 3DPrinter is a genuine, kind-of functional
machine, but a “wearable” is pretty vaporware, almost as vague as
“nanotechnology.”

*When wearables arrive, I hope they’re Italian. If you’ve gotta wear
the damn things all the time, they ought to at least look elegant.

3D printing + Wearables … with Italian origins… sounds like our Arduino-compatible line (FLORA, GEMMA) and our recent 3D + wearables projects and videos with Becky, Noe and Pedro!


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.
