Make: Volume 43

Book description

As electronics have shrunk and power requirements have gotten less demanding, it's no surprise that we're starting to wear our electronic creations. Today's microcontrollers are tiny micro-sized computers that can be embedded into many projects--especially wearables. And they are perfectly happy running off a coin cell or rechargeable lithium polymer battery. This issue explores the latest trends in microcontrollers, with a special focus on wearable and lightweight boards. With 34 projects inside, you can build everything from a smart watch to your own electronic garments. A special section on Intel's Edison tells you everything you need to know about this powerful, inexpensive, and lightweight board.
