Roundup of the top 5 Olympic wearables in Rio 2016 #WearableWednesday
The folks over at WT VOX have a nice roundup of the top 5 wearables from Rio 2016.
After erupting and blasting the global scene over the past tow years, wearable technology has reached the momentum of delivering substantial innovation, and there is no better place to detail on the latest tech progress than this year’s Olympics in Rio.
A showcase of wearable tech developed in specialised labs across the world, by teams of researchers and engineers looking for solutions to maximise the potential of their athletes but let’s take a closer look and see how wearable technology has enhanced their performance this year.
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.
