Oakley is now shipping a pair of glasses that include a coach to assist with your cycling or running training. The Oakley Radar Pace glasses retail for $449 which includes a headphones, mic and a handful of built-in sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, pressure, humidity and proximity). The glasses are also able to speak to external sensors ANT+/BLE devices such as power meters and heart rate monitors.. The glasses make use of Intel’s Real Speech which allows for conversational dialogue with the coaching system which is built into the glasses. The system currently understands English, Italian, German, Spanish and French. There is also a touch pad on the left temple for swipe control. There is also the Oakley Radar Pace app where one enters a description of themselves age, weight, etc. and some goal specifics. The app will “learn” based on workout data and make appropriate adjustments.
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.
