Making wearables - electronics experimentation

Hi there,
I’m a returning member that just finished a Masters in Computational Arts at Goldsmiths .
There I made several wearables using a whole range of electronics from Flora, Micro, accelerometers, pulse sensors, LED driver boards etc. I’m now keen to carry on with my practise in the space and wonder whether there are any other members specialising in wearables? Next I’m planning to experiment with the xBee. If anyone has any experience to share or wants to join in please get in touch.

There’s 2 pollution sensor projects which might become wearable

Where can I see them?

And @Minkovsky was working on one last week

Great, just caught up with the whole conversation that Bushra posted. (Hi @Bushra_Burge :wave:)

When are people generally in the space to do electronics?

Thursday evenings are always electronics/coding nights…among many other times

thursdays evenings are still difficult for me, so was hoping to find some other times

Pick a date/time, advertise it…and see what happens!

xBee it’s really not the best solution for werable in my opinion, have you had a look at the nordics modules with BLE? I would be happy to help if you need.

would love to know more, when can we meet?

Hi @Panjapop
Just catching up :slight_smile:
I’m around next monday day time but working on other previous inflatable project if you’re around. Or we can pick another time

Yes evenings are quite difficult for me as have a young child/dinner-bed time routine etc. But can make some evenings all the same.

Cheers Bushra

I will be there tomorrow around 15.00 or just chose an evening during the week…

Yes, lets do monday. What time will you be there from? I’ll probably pop down around 2pm.

Brilliant, will pop down tmrw for a chat.

Awesome. Going to try & be there from 11am.

Unfortunately I have an optician appointment at 12 otherwise I could be there earlier too. Will be as quick as I can

Hi! I’m at the space and probably leave soon, what time were you planning to pop by?

oh no, sorry I only saw this now. Got side tracked and only popped down to catch you at 4.15 but you had gone. I’ll pop down again tmrw from 2pm.
Let me know when you are next there and I’ll be there?

I wil be there Thursday night

ok, I’ll try and pop by on Thursday.
