Wearable Technology

This is a 30-hour project that incorporates computer and advanced electronic technologies into clothing and accessories. Participants learn:

  • Basic circuitry and C programming
  • How to use conductive thread, bright neopixels, and wearable microcontrollers

In the second year, students concentrate on C programming with an Arduino controller. Femineers design and create wearable gadgets by using the conductive thread for sewing electrical circuits and learning to solder.
