“Hello World” DIY Kit Teaches Preteen Girls About Wearable Technology

When Frog Design ran an internal competition for new wearable-technology concepts in 2012, its Seattle office submitted a do-it-yourself kit designed to give preteen girls the tools to create their own “smart” accessories. Geared toward the influential—and pivotal—tween demographic, the “Hello World” box featured accessible Arduino-based projects that require zero programming skills to complete. And, thanks to its modular design, the kit also allowed plenty of scope for creativity and personal expression. Frog Design needs to bring this to market soon, not just because it’s likely to spark a love of computing in a new generation of girls, but also, more selfishly, because we want one for ourselves.
