CES Asia is an international consumer electronics expo that takes place in Shanghai. They featured some amazing wearable electronics this year, Via TechRadar

The third annual CES Asia came to a close this week with a celebration of wearable technology. The grand finale was a fashion show that featured cutting-edge sports tech alongside biometric ballgowns.

The e-skin shirt, by Japanese developer Xenoma, is a machine-washable top that uses 15 sensors to monitor the wearer’s movements. It’s designed not only for sport, but also for motion-capture, so you could use your body as a game controller without the need for cameras or markers in the room.

Pulse by Jazsalyn McNeil

Pulse is an experimental wearable technology sponsored by the Nano EXtended Textiles (NEXT) research group at North Carolina Sate University’s College of Textiles. It uses conductive screenprinted biosensors and textile-embedded lights inspired by bioluminscent organisms.

NEXT’s work includes creating textile-inspired electronics (low-cost printed components, for example), and using technologies like atomic layer deposition to change the thermal, electrical and optical properties of polymers.

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.
