3D Printed LED Goggles @ Adafruit
We luv our NeoPixel Goggles project

However, if you prefer to make a pair of steampunk goggles rather than mod something off-the-shelf... you've come to the right place. This tutorial project uses the same parts but swaps the off-the-shelf goggles for 3D printed versions.

The Apple Watch has found a surprisingly useful home with everyone that works on their feet • Quartz
Mike Murphy:
<p>You might’ve noticed that the person who took your order at the bar, brought you the shoes you wanted to try on, or perhaps even patted you down at the airport security line, is sporting an Apple Watch, which starts at $329 for the newest Series 3 watch. And there’s a pretty simple explanation: Many service-industry jobs where employees have to be on their feet all day don’t allow workers to check their phones while they’re on the clock. But that rule doesn’t necessarily apply to a piece of unobtrusive jewelry that happens to let you text your friends and check the weather.

Quartz spoke with airline attendants, bartenders, waiters, baristas, shop owners, and (very politely) TSA employees who all said the same thing: The Apple Watch keeps them in touch when they can’t be on their phones at work. Apple has increasingly been pushing the watch as a health device, and seems to have moved away from marketing it as one that offers more basic utility, as Apple continues do with the iPhone. But given that roughly 23% of the US labor force works in wholesale or retail operations, perhaps it’s a market Apple should reconsider.</p>

I don't think Apple is "not considering" the market of people who aren't meant to be standing around looking at their phones. Though it might consider some adverts targeting them.

The Apple Watch has found a surprisingly useful home with everyone that works on their feet — Quartz
When the Apple Watch launched in 2015, it wasn’t exactly clear who, or what, it was for. It was a phone accessory meant to curtail some of the notification anxiety the phones themselves had created by paring your digital life down to only the most essential disturbances. via Pocket

Fitbit's current-quarter revenue forecast misses estimates • Reuters
<p>Wearable device maker Fitbit Inc’s forecast for current-quarter revenue missed Wall Street estimates, hurt by a drop in sales of fitness trackers.

Shares of the company fell 1.6% to $5.41 in after-market trading on Wednesday after the company said it expects a 19% drop in the second-quarter revenue.

The company said it sold 2.2m devices in the quarter at an average selling price of $112 per device, below analysts’ estimate of 2.33m devices, according to financial data analytics firm FactSet.

Fitbit said it expects revenue for the current quarter to be in a range of $275m to $295m, below analysts estimate of $309.9m, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

In April, Fitbit announced the worldwide launch of its latest smartwatch ‘Versa’ after Chief Executive Officer James Park promised to launch a more ‘mass appeal watch’ in 2018 compared with ‘Iconic’, the company’s first smartwatch that had failed to impress.</p>

You have to go back to 2014 to find such a low number of devices sold. Revenue fell 18%. It's only a matter of time before it gets rolled up by someone like Google (which needs a wearables business that actually works for it, unlike WearOS).

Animated Flame Pendant @ Adafruit
A little fire for your heart! But there’s no actual flame here, no heat…instead, LEDs and a microcontroller make a virtual flame that dances like the real thing. (In fact it’s playing a tiny video loop of a real candle.)
