Douglas Injugu, the famous author who keeps writing interesting posts about batteries, solar power, and other related projects, recently wrote about making of wearable sensors. The core product that works in this creation is MetaWear Coin, a Bluetooth Sensor Platform with an SDK that can be used for developing Smart & Connected Wearable entities. These are, basically, coin-cell powered batteries that can be used for making some very smart products. MetaWear Coin is a highly sophisticated platform that comprises of wireless hardware loaded with a functional and simple case as well sensors.
MetaWear employs a minute replaceable coin-cell battery that offers power for at least 90-180 days. Its usual measurement goes up to ten pence. The biggest thing about these small cells is that these are certified, manufacturing ready, and cost0effective, therefore, one doesn’t need to waste time in building any new product from the beginning.
So, how exactly does it work? The device here can read log motion data, sound an alarm whenever a button gets pressed, reads temperature, log motion data, alternatively adjusts the volume of Bluetooth speaker, and downloads log data in memory whenever you shake the MetaWear.
MetaWear Coin is completely open source which means you can modify the code as per your wishes. Having MetaWear coin with you means you can now make your own smartwatch as well as other wearable equipment by simply attaching sensors with key components.
