Sound activated EL wire glasses

Stronger Glasses @ ch00ftech Industries via HaD.

Here is a pair of light up glasses I made for New Years Eve. The fashion design belongs to my friend Jordan. You can see more of her work here. The electrical design is my own and you can read all about it on my blog here.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Instead of making a custom circuit, this can be done by using the inverter from one of those sound-activated “equalizer” T-shirts (aka T-qualizer). All you have to do is make a connector for the EL wire then connect it to the inverter. The inverter and panel without the T-shirt only cost about $7 at dealextreme.
