Transcript of "Wearable Computing Lightening Talk"

  1. 1. Wearable Computing!
  2. 2. History ● ● Conductive fabrics/thread have been used for over 1000 years! By the late 19th century, electricity was so ubiquitous, party planners could hire women to wear light-studded party gowns
  3. 3. Categories ● Wearable computing encompasses a wide range of uses – purely aesthetic ● – light/sound displays purely practical/functional ● ● Google glasses Turn signal bike jackets
  4. 4. Enter Arduino ● Arduino – open source electronics prototyping platform – Hardware (microcontroller, inputs, outputs) – Software/IDE (simplified C++ language)
  5. 5. Arduino Hardware Suites ● Microcontroller ● Inputs – – Accelerometers – ● Temperature/Light Sensors Switches, Buttons Outputs – LEDs, Speakers, Vibration Motors
  6. 6. Hardware Examples ● Lilypad Arduino http://lilypadarduino.org/ – Female Creator (Leah Buechley) – Easy Development Boards ● ● Prewired to plug into computer, then snap apart for sewing FLORA http://www.adafruit.com/category/92 – Less expensive, steeper learning curve
  7. 7. Arduino Software
  8. 8. Learning ● LadyAda.net http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/index.html ● Adafruit Tutorials http://learn.adafruit.com/category/learn-arduino ● Arduino Tutorials http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Foundations#.Uw7BI16rXXQ ● Sparkfun Tutorials https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials
