The Motobit Sentinel is a Wearable For Motorcyclist #WearableWednesday
Interesting peice of tech aimed at rider’s safety. Via Visor Down:
The small device can either be worn like a watch, strapped to a belt, or tucked in your jacket pocket. Not only can the device alert you or an emergency contact to a crash, but the system can also understand, through GPS from the user’s smartphone, what the road ahead looks like. Because of this, the Sentinel can inform the rider of the severity of a corner allowing them to adjust their speed accordingly. The system notifies the rider to alerts with haptic vibrations that can alert the rider to a range of situations.
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.
