Those of you that are considering making wearable devices or smart clothing might be interested to know that the MetaWear device, that we featured back at the beginning of this month, has now passed its Kickstarter crowd funding goal.
MetaWear has been designed to provide an easy way to making a wearable device in 30 minutes or less, and still has three days left in its campaign that has raised enough pledges to make certain of a jump from concept into production.
Watch the video below to learn more about this tiny ARM+Bluetooth LE Platform created specifically to create wearable devices. Its creators explain :
“MetaWear is the world’s first development and production platform designed specifically for Wearables. It comes in a tiny form factor to fit any product and is manufacturing ready, certified, and cost optimized.
All you have to do is create an iOS or Android App and in minutes, you have a production quality Bluetooth Low Energy product you can sell!
Everything works right out of the box so you can build prototypes fast and effortlessly. Simply download or fork the API on Github, pick and choose the sensors you want to use on the MetaWear board, customize your App, turn on LEDs and get feedback from the accelerometer and voila! You have a functional product with hardware and a mobile App!”
