Professional athletes and trainers have access to technology that can monitor speed, movement and heart rate. This technology was under developed and very expensive. Tribe Wearables founder Demetres Stordopoulos wanted to make this technology more advanced and more accessible. Stordopoulos says the basic idea for the prototype was “like a pair of shorts, a computer and an octopus had a child,”
This endeavor brings us gym shorts that can keep track of our every move, guide us to improve our work-out technique and help prevent any injuries.
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.
