Hobbyists, DIY-ers and even startups interested in dabbling in wearables or BLE devices could have something new to experiment with – Vigekwear, a micro, modularized, open source BLE product.

Created by Shenzhen-based Shuwen Liu, Vigekwear is based on a Nordic BLE chipset, and its ‘building block’ components allow users to create their ideal wearable. Vigekwear is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter with one week to go, and has already raised about CAD$10,000 of its $12,000 goal.

The variety of micro-sized modules in Vigekwear makes it completely customizable. The different type of modules include a battery charger module, acceleration sensor module, heart rate sensing module and OLED display module, just to name a few.
