10:00am to 11:15am
This session provides an overview of existing trends and possibilities in embedded and wearable circuitry.
We’ll cover existing hardware and software, including Arduino, an open-source prototyping platform, the Amarino toolkit library for Arduino, wireless radio capabilities (using Bluetooth, Zigbee and serial interface), the Sparkfun IOIO board, and other Android-specific hardware, off-the-shelf sensors and other components, smart fabrics, conductive thread, and other inherently functional materials.
In this session, you’ll also see some examples of existing products, like filtration scarf, music tapestries, other music manipulation devices, microphone/earphones scarfs or hats, JeeNode sensor networks, pants interfaces, Kobakant conductive threads, and much more!
What are the applications of wearables? Many! They include: warehouse/inventory tracking; music/lighting control for the stage, gaming, creative/generative (DJ to watercolor to lighting design), biometrics tracking for medical and sports. Also, event generation for any application (like an alarm clock), object tracking, centralization and specialized sensor networks (such as pollution sensing, efficiency-data gathering, and smarthomes) are included.
