Temperature sensing wristband with the Neosensory Buzz #AssistiveTechnology @hacksterio

Mike Perrotta has combined a Neosensory Buzz wristband with an Adafruit Feather Bluefruit LE board and two Adafruit MLX90614 infrared thermometers to provide the ability to get haptic/vibration feedback when something is warmer nearby, like a person.

In the 1987 movie Predator, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character fights an alien enemy in a dark, foggy rainforest.  They realize all too late the Predator has thermal vision and can track humans by sensing their body temperature.

Thermal vision isn’t reserved for sci-fi aliens: snakes, frogs, fish and mosquitos are among many animals that sense heat. What if you could join the ranks of these thermal-sensing animals? What if you could add temperature detection to your assortment of senses? Sensory expansion technology allows you to do this by passing temperature information to your brain via a separate sensory input.

The Feather board conveniently comes with onboard battery charging built in, so all that’s needed to charge the battery is to plug a micro-usb cable into your Feather. You’ll see a yellow light indicating that the battery is charging.

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.
