I've always loved to knit and craft and I sell hats on Etsy. I've wanted to explore wearables so when unhack announced this guided project I jumped to the occasion and got it working! I'll be using these skills to make more wearables in the future! HatSense displays text sent from an Adafruit app on the phone to the display, which can be altered to suit many applications.
In the future I can connect this to apps to display names on forheads for the charades game, to display warnings from NYC Open Data in case of a natural disaster or amber alert, advertise in public - earn money while walking... The applications are endless!
