10 #Wearables Projects You Can Build This Summer #WearableWednesday
May your summer be full of sunshine, happiness, and wearable electronics. Here are ten projects you can build this summer to take advantage of those extra rays. First up, prepare for frequent SPF reapplication with the Sunscreen Reminder Hat, which chimes your favorite monophonic tune when the UV sensor detects you’ve been exposed for long enough.
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.
