You've most likely visible LED-decorated t-shirts and hats, and perhaps even different digital instruments embedded in garments, yet with Arduino Wearables you could learn how to make your individual wearable digital creations.

This booklet is an creation to wearable computing, prototyping, and clever fabrics utilizing the Arduino platform. each bankruptcy takes you all of the manner from inspiration to entire undertaking. no matter if you don't have any event with Arduino, this ebook gets you place up with the entire fabrics, software program, and you would like; you'll entire uncomplicated tasks first, after which construct in your starting to be services to make extra complicated tasks. via the top of the ebook, you'll have learned:
* Electronics fundamentals
* tips on how to prototype effectively
* Arduino programming
* the way to layout and construct your personal wearable Arduino creations

Along the way in which you'll create enjoyable and encouraging wearables, such as: 
* An LED bracelet: research the fundamentals of wearable electronics
* A synthesizer tie: settle for consumer enter and create output in reaction
* A solar-powered glow at midnight bag: create self-sufficient wearables
* A form reminiscence flower: shop kingdom and control your wearables
* An EL cord costume: upload clothier touches for your wearables
* A beatbox hoodie: use a voice-activated sequencer and pores and skin resistance to create the best of city wearables

Arduino Wearables is the full advisor to getting began with Arduino and wearable computing. the ten inspiring initiatives to make, research from, and construct upon will equip you for growing your personal tasks; the single restrict is your imagination.

Sample text

This means that they can detect if something is true or false. While writing sketches for the Arduino, you can use Boolean variables, which are variables that can be only one of two things: true of false. A Boolean variable is declared the same as any other variable: boolean myBoolean = true; In our code, we would use the boolean to check if things are true; and if they are, we can choose to do something else. The transistor enables us to do the same thing in real life. Usually, big transistors like the one in Figure 3-3 are used to control high power with a lower-powered signal, as shown in Figure 3-4.

If we have a small lamp connected, it is very hard to see that the lamp is being turned ON and OFF. In fact, it is impossible for the human eye to detect this flickering, and it would just look like the lamp is on all the time. So in this case we need to add the delay command, and as the name suggests, this command makes a pause in your sketch. The delay command counts in milliseconds, so to make a one-second delay, we would set the delay to 1000, like this: int myPin = 13; void setup(){ pinMode(myPin, OUTPUT); } void loop(){ digitalWrite(myPin, HIGH); delay(1000); digitalWrite(myPin, LOW); delay(1000); } I use two delay commands because, if I just use one delay between the digitalWrite commands, at the end of the loop it would just jump from OFF back to ON again, and we would not be able to tell that it actually went OFF.

The two slashes indicate that everything written afterward is not a part of the actual program. It has the effect of hiding the text from the Arduino so that you can add comments to your sketches. Adding comments is always good to do if you want to share your code with others, or use them as a helpful reminder for yourself, or to let the reader know what is going on at certain parts of the sketch. You'll see plenty of comments in the project code later in the book. Adding the Loop Next up we have the loop function.
