Now there’s a growing number of clothing items—shirts, leggings, shorts, and more—that feature the same type of tiny sensors that are in your Jawbone. While they’re wicking away sweat, these clothes also monitor things like heart rate, breathing rate, calories burned and more. Some even keep tabs on your form, alerting in real time you when you need an adjustment.
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.
