The components are:
- AppsLab Slapbands from Amazing Wristbands (@AMZG_Wristbands)
- LightBlue Beans from Punch Through Design (@punchthrough)
- 3D-printed cases, designed by Friend of the ‘Lab Rob, printed by Sculpteo (@sculpteo)
- LED lights
- An NFC sticker
The Bean is an amazingly little board, Arduino-compatible with a Bluetooth Low Energy module, plus an RGB LED and an 3-axis accelerometer.
I can’t tell you what we’re doing with this custom wearable, yet, but it will happen during OpenWorld. If you’ll be at the big show, OpenWorld or JavaOne, you’ll have a chance to see it in action and chat with the guys who built it.
Oh, and Noel will be writing up the details of the build, the story behind it and the journey, as well as all the nerdy bits. Stay tuned for that.
