Video: #WearableTech From Amazing Women in the Field #WearableWednesday @wareable

I’m so excited to share this video from Wareable about the women behind the scenes in wearable tech. Some of them I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at events in NY, like Sabine Seymour who often moderates panel discussions and lately has invented SUPA, technology and sensors to do seamless IoT with clothing. I also recall Monisha Perkash convincing a stiff convention audience that her slouch detecting wearable had merit. I remember running up to her after her demo to tell her how much I admired her work, and this was a few years before her Lumo company took off. The best part of the video is the women laughing about their comfort with sewing, soldering and electronics. It’s so true! There’s something exciting about the way these materials come together, and I don’t just mean the wearable gadgets, but the soft wearables that blend with fabric and just feel like they belong on the body. Make sure you share this video with anyone interested in the field and especially the young women in your life. If they show interest, then it’s time to bring on a great book like Getting Started with Adafruit FLORA. It introduces the FLORA stitchable microcontroller and its sensors, and also offers some great projects to try. There’s more than one way to discover electronics and this is both practical and fun.

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!

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, 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.
