Get creative with the BrightDot wearable collection!
BrightDots are small and wearable modules with one or more LEDs that need to be controlled by an Arduino compatible development board.
The entire collection includes a series of diverse modules with addressable RGB LEDs that can be controlled individually. We also developed a unique Arduino compatible that you can use to create something bright & wearable that's also smart. ESP32 WEARABLE DEVELOPMENT BOARD
The PCB of each BrightDot module is super thin and includes gold plated contacts with 6 sewing holes of 1.22mm. Also, all models have backup lines to ensure that one broken LED does not affect the others.
Every LED is controlled by 3 wires (power, ground & data) and can be connected via these wires to the next LED, creating a big string of LEDs. You can solder these LEDs in electric circuits, or sew them into clothing, onto backpacks, onto shoes, …
Check out the entire collection here!

Charge your smartphone wirelessly with Exelium
Do you often spend time looking for your phone's charging cable? Or does the cable always get tangled up? The wireless magnetic chargers from Exelium might make your life a lot easier.
At home, at the office or in the car
At home, at the office, in your car: Exelium has the right charger for every situation. Exelium has a car kit, a desk stand or a system with wall mount. Even if your smartphone does not support wireless charging, you can still charge it wirelessly with the special Exelium cases. If no power socket is available, the wireless power bank will come in handy.
One of the greatest assets of the Exelium range is the fact that the chargers are magnetic: just put your phone on it and the charger will automatically hold and charge your phone. The magnetic power bank allows you to charge your phone while you are on the go.
The Exelium range supports Qi technology, the open interface standard for wireless charging. This technology uses a magnetic field to transports energy between two devices. Wireless charging of electrical appliances has been around for a long time, for example in electric toothbrushes. Wireless charging will become even more popular in the coming years as manufacturers increasingly equip their devices with the technology.
