Students show ‘smart’ jumper with Arduino to send messages




Two students from New York University have created a jersey that the wearer can send. Discrete messages The pair wanted to demonstrate the concept that a telephone process is something that “truly portable” is.

Students, Rucha Patwardhan and Alina Balean, wanted in his own words a step further than Google does with his example Glass glasses. They examined during a course how electronics can be incorporated into clothing and then had the idea to create a ‘smart’ sweater as writing American media Monday.

In the garment, the Smart Hoodie, students processed an Arduino computer. They linked the Arduino GSM Shield, a SIM card which can be stopped in order to make a data connection. Possible via GPRS Finally confirmed the two touch sensors in the hat and sleeves.

The first switch made the students in the left sleeve. Once that was pressed, there was a Facebook message posted stating that the owner is a lesson to follow. Later they added there sensors in the cap and the sleeve to it, which the Arduino can be operated. Gestures Thus, the acquisition of a hat and rolling up a sleeve ways to send automated. Posts

The concept was an experiment, according to the authors, but they say that the sweater is too focused on technology enthusiasts who have access to computers and the Internet. “In the ideal situation there is a web interface where the user can program, so he can still communicate when he is on the move in advance. Messages and songs” Another application is to allow children to wear the jersey so they can send. Example, on the way to school messages to their parents
