The Secret Life Of Fashion MEMS – Through Biomolecules Into The Blockchain #WearableWednesday

Vesper MEMS on a coin

Interesting article from WT VOX about the new wave micro-electromechanical systems and the potential applications.

Via WT VOX:

The ‘micro-electromechanical systems’ technology consist of silicon-based microelectronics merged – at a nanotech scale – with micromachining technology. These ‘microsensors’ have powerful commercial applications that are revolutionising consumer and industrial products.

So far, MEMS technology has seen great success in environmental sensing contexts as these microscopic devices are used to detect the tiniest changes in the surrounding environment by measuring thermal, magnetic, mechanical, chemical, electromagnetic, and many more variations.

Embedded MEMS in the garments of tomorrow will allow the wearers not only to gain access to an extensive range of measurements relating to own personal biometrics but also give them the ability to receive micropayments on the blockchain. Payments for user generated data such as web traffic, devices usage, body movement, social media engagement, types of consumption and overall, the emotional responses correlated with the chemical changes for each of the above mentioned activities. Every bit of data we produce has a price.

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 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.
