Tricked Out Arduino Watches

by on Jun.24, 2010, under DIY Wearables, Wearables, WW Wish List

Sparkfun Watches

This is wearable hotness.

Maker Faire  participant Matthew Garten has created two Arduino Watches using Sparkfun materials. The Steampunk theme is probably the  favorite, but the Biopunk theme watch covered in stingray skin (??!) is pretty awesome too.

The watches use trackball control,  draw pictures, play games and connects to a glove with a myriad of sensors to collect a variety of data.

Instructions can be found on Instructables and more information on Optimized Force.

We tip our hat to you Mr. Garten

We all know and love ThinkGeek’s Wifi Detecting Shirt, but modifying it to add to a your car is dork-tastic! Instructables has a relatively easy project to upgrade your car from chic to geek. Not sure how useful it is, but we imagine it can make any traffic bound geek pretty happy.

Stroke Sensor

by on Jan.14, 2010, under DIY Wearables, Wearables

Stroke Sensor

This is a neat DIY offered on Instructables; a switch that turns on an LED light by literally stroking the hairs of conductive and resistive thread. Using  neoprene to hold each thread, the user’s strokes turns on a LED light powered by a 3V coin cell battery.  Simple, practical and cost effective.

A lot of potential in the wearables world. Imagine gloves that when worn and rubbed together trigger the heating element, instantly warming the user’s hands.   Could the threads be sensitive enough to detect wind movement?  We’re very curious.
