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.
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.
