5 most sci-fi tech predictions from SXSW #SciFiSunday
Thanks to Ian for sending in this cool piece from Dazed about the sci-fi tech forecasts from sxsw.
Now that the Interactive (read: technology) part of South By Southwest has closed, it’s time to recap on what we learnt, other than the fact that the hype around wearable tech isn’t going away any time soon. This year was a special bumper year for fashion at SXSW. For the first time, the convention curated a special programme called SXstyle that blended science, tech and fashion into one delightfully packaged look into the future of design. Here’s five of the biggest predictions from the cutting edge of fash-tech.

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, 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.
