SparkFun Photon Wearable Shield

The SparkFun Photon Wearable Shield makes it easy to add the WiFi-enabled Photon to any wearables project. Each pin on the Photon is broken out into large sewing pins. Use conductive thread to make your next wearables projects. The large pins are also great for using conductive paint to create any project that needs WiFi. There are even optional smaller pins for soldering flexible wires. The SparkFun Photon Wearable Shield comes with the headers already soldered on, so you can plug and play! This version uses a 0.8mm thick PCB (as opposed to the standard 1.6mm), which is easier to sew into your next project.

The Particle Photon is a tiny WiFi development kit for creating connected projects and products. Sporting a 120MHz ARM Cortex M3 and built-in WiFi, the Photon is not only powerful, but easy to use. The small form factor is ideal for IoT (Internet of Things) projects with cloud connectivity.

  • 24 Large Sewing Tabs
  • Headers and Connectors Pre-Soldered
  • Compatible with the Photon and the Core

    Greetings. What is the battery holding device featured next to the Wearable Shield in the video? Is it the LilyPad Simple Power featured on this site, or something else? Thanks.

    What has changed with this from the older version?

    • M-Short / about 8 years ago / 1

      The older one accidentally got ordered as 1.6mm PCB (standard thickness). These are 0.8mm which is what we use for most of our wearable boards. So just the thinner PCB.
