The Barcelona Street Project #Sneakairs #WearableWednesday
Great project that will let you scoot around without having to constantly look at your phone for directions. From wired:
The system uses a vibration module, battery and a miniature Bluetooth Low Energy unit crammed onto board that is just 3 millimeters thick and fits into the sole of each shoe. Of course it pairs to any smartphone. The buzzes that tell you where to go come from a pedestrian navigator application that uses the Google Maps API. Like any navi app, simple fire it up, plan your itinerary, and follow the turn-by-turn directions it send to your kicks.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
