Emoji Fitness Tracking Accessories #WearableWednesday

EmojiPin

Well, well, if fitness tracking hasn’t gotten cute. These new pins and necklaces that debuted at Fashion Week may be thin, but they’re packing Intel Curie tech, bringing some nice features like Bluetooth and a six axis sensor into the mix. I do love my Fitbit, but I have to admit that the cute shapes are really tempting. Besides, where are they hiding the battery? Actually you can guess by the tiny dimensions that these are coin cell operated, and that’s possible because they are extremely energy efficient. So nice to spot these on ChipChick! My question, is the reflective top layer to help mitigate heat?

The new trackers are a collaboration with Yazbukey, which certainly explains the pop culture appeal. You’ll find her making purses of plexi that scream fun. So, is the reflective material in question on these Emoji also plexi? Seems like I need a behind-the-scenes tour on this one. Mysteries aside, it’s nice to see wearables taking a light-hearted and less technical exterior. This speaks to the collaborations that are springing up in the fashion houses too, matching tech expertise with design skills. It used to be separation and fear, but now both sides are seeing the value in working together and good looking functional design is emerging. More of that, please. Did you know that one of the first things design students learn is to reverse engineer products? That’s right, they tear them apart, research the components and even turn them into exhibits with everything labeled. Did you know that Adafruit does teardowns as well? If you want to know more about squeezing parts and power into a small space, check out this teardown on Ringly. You are about to witness one of the best electronic burritos you’ve ever seen!

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!


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
