All inquisitive askers whose questions are featured on this week’s LIVE Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern will be eligible for a special giveaway. Post your Qs in the comments here, on Google+, Twitter, or YouTube, and then tune in at 2pm ET on Wednesday for the answers and to see if you’ve won!

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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

CircuitPython in 2018 – Python on Microcontrollers is here!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. 1) what are good techniques to prevent or cover up sharp edges of components and connectors? Round circuit boards and conductive thread are a good start of course 😀 Printing ovoid project boxes might help. Covering it all in Sugru or polymorph when it’s finished is another approach, but seriously, who ever *finishes* a project? 😉

    2) what are the main causes of failure you’ve seen in wearables and how can we build more robust projects?

    3) what precautions should we take against fire, especially for high-powered projects? Atttaching large LiPo batteries to myself makes me nervous… I build in quick-release mechanisms and use non-synthetic fabrics, but I have no idea whether that would really be much help. (It happens! http://blog.ryangrieve.com/the-raspberry-pipboy/)

    4) more on safety: how can an electronics novice judge at what point the (current? voltage? not even sure) of a project or component is dangerous?

    5) what are good techniques and products to waterproof wearables?

  2. Can I buy the bucket of red LED’s you used to make the candies and you can no longer sell?
