I’ve been eyeing adafruit’s wearable hardware components for a while now, especially since my company offered support to anyone who’d bring more hardware knowhow to the table \o/
Yesterday, I talked to my mother, the topic somehow migrated to this hardware stuff, and the next thing we knew, we had specified my first project: the School Scarf.
The basic idea is a scarf with LEDs which change colors when the classroom is too loud.
I expanded this with the requirement that it should be possible to set the “normal” color of the LEDs to a particular value, thus for example matching it to the rest of the outfit.
- scarf with colorchanging LEDs
- noise sensor, triggers color change to “alarm color” if noise exceeds a certain value
- color sensor, triggers color change to “normal color”
Basically, the scarf will be a mashup between the Chameleon Scarf and the LED Ampli-Tie
- Gemma starter pack
- 20 NeoPixels
- Flora colorsensor
I’ll keep you up to date!
