OVERVIEW

Project Brookdale is a set of technologies designed to enable fashion designers and others to explore the incorporation of technology into fashion. The hardware includes plug-and-play microcontrollers, which are called the Brain and Beads. The Brain is the heart of the operation, which handles the plug and play logic when a Bead is connected to it. Beads are custom sensors which are used for input, such as temperature, color, or location.
