Back to the Future Fun with Marty McSleeves #WearableWednesday

McSleeves

More excitement from our friends at Hackster.io with their Hack to the Future tour in San Fran–this Marty McSleeves Jacket. Check out the detail with one sleeve up and one sleeve down. There’s some fancy mechanicals going on inside that cleverly respond to temperature. So, if you’re planning on any time jumps with unpredictable weather, this jacket will be ready.

Something that makes this jacket successful is the 3D printing used to create the winch and sleeve bracelets. The rig reminds me of the robot’s arms on Lost in Space, and definitely gets the job done. Of course, everything is operating from a Spark Core microcontroller, allowing sleeves to be triggered with a phone app. Check out the team’s video.

I want to give a shout out to team members Vince, Stephen, Ken, Stephanie, Martha and Tinic for an awesome build. Hey, what about Calvin? (movie joke). Anyway, it’s exciting to see a wearable come out of this tour, and I’m still hoping for more. So, bring it on, people! For the rest of you not participating, you can study up on servos with our Types of Motors learning guide. Then, you’ll be able to make your own McSleeves jacket at home, without a DeLorean.
