These Sushi Cards will show you how to use wearable, programmable LEDs and how to control them with code.
WARNING: this project involves bright flashing lights! It may not be suitable if there are people who have epilepsy present.
What you will make
In this project, you will sew LED lights to a T-shirt and write code to make them flash and change colour!
What you will need
- Adafruit Flora or Gemma
- A USB cable
- Around eight NeoPixels
- Conductive thread
- Three pairs of crocodile clips (you can also use pieces of conductive thread instead, but crocodile clips may be easier to test with)
- Optional: a battery pack, which will allow you to wear your finished project without it being attached to a computer!
