If you are looking for something a little different to introduce someone to programming you might be interested in this new myDazzu programmable wearable electronic wristband which is now available from the Adafruit website.
The myDazzu is an innovative wrist band that is equipped with a flexible board that can be programmed by a flashing image on the makers screen and requires no programming to enjoy. Check out the clip in the video after the jump at around 16.20.
“The Dazzu board is a flexible, programmable board, with 3 LEDs that can be slipped into pretty much any project. It has built-in light and temperature sensors, and you can attach others for sound, proximity and motion sensing.
With it, you can make felt kits or paper craft that turn on in the dark, or when you press it. Wrap it around a vase, make a twinkling nightlight, slip it into a holiday album.
No tools or soldering required! Just add the Dazzu board to any project, insert a watch battery (included), and it will start to twinkle. If you make the wristband project, please note its for child-size wrists, not adults! Use a computer, tablet or smartphone to change the twinkling pattern directly from the screen! No software to install or wires to connect.”
