In an effort to make body monitoring technology more accessible, Demetres Stordopoulos has developed a prototype. His prototype shorts will provide the sort of information professional athletes and trainers have access to. via Sport Wearables
In 2013, a trip to a bio medical lab inspired Strodopoulos. He wanted to take the monitoring technology and put it into gym cloths. The smart wearables were supposed to monitor the user’s health and movement without the confines of a laboratory and without the crushing cost.
“The idea was to develop a wearable by putting an entire Biomechanics lab on a pair of shorts, using an embedded technology that itself was under research and development,” says Nikos Aggelousis, Tribe Wearables’ lead Bioengineer.

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.
