How did our classic Wearables Kit become a Jewelbits Science Kit?
When we first started building Jewelbots, just after our Kickstarter, we found we had a super engaged network of supporters and didn't have anything to send them as our friendship bracelets were still in development. Designing and manufacturing hardware takes a long time. We decided to start selling a kit that contained an Arduino and enabled kids to program light-up LEDs and sew them on shirts, dresses, and dolls.
The Jewelbots Wearables kit was a big hit. We hosted several events where creators could make their own inventions, and saw light up stuffed animals, a beautiful starry night sweatshirt, and even an animated light-up dollhouse.
After we launched the Jewelbots friendship bracelet, we decided to sunset the Wearables kit. The friendship bracelet was taking all of our focus, so, we stopped selling the wearables kit on our website.
Since then a lot has happened. When we started shipping Jewelbits Science Kits, after shipping out some boxes we knew we needed to bring back the Wearables Kit. Our Jewelbots Wearables kits were such a hit, we knew we had a great electronics themed addition to the group to get out into the world.
We hope that with the new and improved instructions, videos online, and easy to use materials our ambassadors will be able to build even more amazing things with our new Hello World: Electronics kit.
