With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form--the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes--so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.
Our bodies are our primary interface for the world. Interactive systems designed to be worn can be intimate, upfront, and sometimes in your face (literally). Bringing wearable electronics from concept to prototype to product can be both inspiring and challenging. This book gives you what you need to start working with these new materials, tools, and techniques. It covers popular wearable products such as the Arduino Lilypad, and Adafruit Flora.
