New book out: Create wearable tech with Sophy Wong #Wearable #Wearables #books @Raspberry_Pi, @sophywong
Wearable Tech Projects, from the makers of HackSpace magazine, is a 164-page book packed with projects for the fashionable electronics enthusiast, with more than 30 projects which will blink, flash, and spark joy in your life.
Fans of Sophy Wong will already know about the amazing wearable tech that she develops. We wanted to make sure that more people discovered her work and the incredible world of wearable technology. You’ll start simple with sewable circuits and LEDs, and work all the way up to building your own wearable controller (complete with feathers) for an interactive, fully immersive game of Flappy Bird.
You’ll discover new techniques for working with fabric, find out about the best microcontrollers for your projects, and learn the basics of CircuitPython, the language developed at Adafruit for physical computing. There’s no ‘Hello, World!’ or computer theory here; this is all about practical results and making unique, fascinating things to wear.
The book features a number of Adafruit products which get you started fast as all the technology is included in the circuit board!

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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, 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.
