Transcript

  • 1. Wearable Computing!
  • 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. Categories ● Wearable computing encompasses a wide range of uses – purely aesthetic ● – light/sound displays purely practical/functional ● ● Google glasses Turn signal bike jackets
  • 4. Enter Arduino ● Arduino – open source electronics prototyping platform – Hardware (microcontroller, inputs, outputs) – Software/IDE (simplified C++ language)
  • 5. Arduino Hardware Suites ● Microcontroller ● Inputs – – Accelerometers – ● Temperature/Light Sensors Switches, Buttons Outputs – LEDs, Speakers, Vibration Motors
  • 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. Arduino Software
  • 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
  • 9. Support ● Arduino Forum http://forum.arduino.cc/ ● Sparkfun Forum https://forum.sparkfun.com/ ● Reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/arduino/
  • 10. Inspiration ● Butterfly dress flaps with heartbeat http://artandprogram.com/butterflydress/index.php?mov=1 ● Solar powered phones phone charging bags http://www.howcast.com/videos/271702-How-to-Make-a-Solar-Charging-Bag ● Turn Signaling Biking Jacket http://lilypadarduino.org/?p=1478 ● Touch Sensitive Hoodie http://www.instructables.com/id/musical-conductivity-detecting-light-up-hoodie/
