Make It Wearable Ep 1: Human Communication

Make It Wearable Ep 1: Human Communication by Creators Project/Intel:

Wearable technology may be extending human intelligence into the next frontier of new media and intelligence. Whether we’re talking about makeup that controls drones, LED-enhanced dresses, or other wearable devices that push the boundaries of personal computing, the topic is both futuristic and vital right now. To spotlight the evolution of such exciting creativity, The Creators Project is exploring the topic in a five-part documentary series called Make It Wearable, in support of Intel’s own Make It Wearable challenge.

While we don’t know the limits of wearables, the innovations within the field are inspiring human-technology connection like never before, while also forcing the world to reconsider our formerly-held notions about the limits of tech.

Part One: Human Communication (which can be watched above) zones in on the various interpretations of wearable devices, and spotlights a few innovators who are already using wearables to push the boundaries of communication and machinery, including MITs Media Lab (which feels like something out of a sci-fi movie), mobile-journalist Tim Pool, and other luminaries in the field.


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.
