Unicef has announced a contest called
The Wearables for Good challenge to design wearable tech to help communities around the world.
A challenge to design wearable and sensor technology that serves people in resource constrained environments.
Anyone! The Wearables for Good challenge is open to anybody with ideas, including students, entrepreneurs, members of the maker community, engineers, designers, and technologists.
Across the globe: wherever you are, wherever you live, we want you to participate.
Now! Applications will be accepted until 4 August 2015.
Winners will be announced Fall 2015. WHY
When we work together, the social impact, design, and tech communities can help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.

here. 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!
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.
