DIY wearable electronics mix fashion with function
The popularity of Google glass seems to be fading away, and Apple’s soon-to-be smart watch is the wearable electronic device that might just take its place. But it isn’t just about wearable electronics from those big name companies. DIY wearable electronics are becoming more popular as the demand for wearable technology increases. Companies are catching on to the fact that people not only want to wear electronics, but they also want to make their own. One of those companies is Adafruit, a company that helps consumers make their own wearable technology. Joining us with more on wearable technology are Tricia Bobeda, WBEZ’s digital producer, and Becky Stern, Adafruit’s director of electronics.
