Wearable banana – Dole presents the world’s first edible wearable #WearableWednesday

This was from back in February but we somehow missed it – Dole made “wearable bananas” for the Tokyo marathon this year. So what exactly is a wearable banana? From the site:

Dole developed an ultimate banana for the marathoners, “Wearable Banana”! This device can measure the runners’ heart rate, lap time, and display the figures onto a real banana. You can even cheer the runner through social media, which will show directly onto the banana peel! And after the race, of course you can eat it too! Finish the race mentally and physically energized!

This is a funny idea – seems like a marketing stunt rather than something that was actually implemented in the race but if you went to the Tokyo marathon this year and saw the wearable bananas let us know in the comments! As for the hardware behind it – we peeped an arduino and some LED matrices. Read more about the wearable banana here!


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


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.
