What is awearness?
awearness is a simple wristband created during JugendHackt 2014 (a yearly hackathon for humans between 11 and 18 years in Berlin).
Actually it is quite simple: A 3d-printed wristband which connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The smartphone then is able to trigger the built-in vibration motor or LEDs of the wristband. The idea is to remind you or make you aware of certain things. For example: awearness is – as you might guess – an open-source wristband. You can find the code that was pushed while JugendHackt in Jugendhackt/awearness. We'll move the repositories to the awearness organization and push the missing code soon!
- a surveillance camera is nearby
- you're in front of a supermarket and need to buy something
- you're driving too fast
Where can I get it?
awearness is – as you might guess – an open-source wristband. You can find the code in the repos owned by the awearness org.
To have a real wristband you might want to print it yourself. Then you might want to get a RFduino and equip it with the firmware from the repo. The corresponding Android-App is not ready yet and there's (sadly) no iOS-Dev in our team (yet).
The wristband itself is 3d-printed what gives surprising good results.
