Intel’s ‘Make It Wearable’ Challenge Accepting Submissions

On the Creators Project blog:

In our video above, Mary Huang of Continuum Fashion asks viewers “what if you could change the world with one powerful idea?” In this case Huang hints at the myriad applications of wearable technology in our near future, when, as Huang poses, advancements will become a “personal and seamless” part of daily life.

Intel supports this revolution in wearable tech and the creators fueling it. As part of their Make It Wearable challenge, starting February 24th Intel will be collecting submissions to help promote and explore the next big ideas in the field.

The VISIONARY track, the first contest Intel will be rolling out this year, rewards those that think big–recognizing ideas and projects with the potential to radically change the way we live. To enter, creators must submit a 1-minute video detailing innovative ideas, to be chosen in 5 rounds throughout the year. These ideas will then be judged by a panel of experts, and evaluated on their potential for innovation. Finalists from each round will be featured on the Make It Wearable website, and winners will receive $5,000 in seed funding to help get them started. Finalists will also be invited to the Make It Wearable presentation and gala event to be held in San Francisco.

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, 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.
