Rain-Activated Light Up Umbrella

Light up umbrella

Awesome project!

Once upon a time, 2 girls greatly enjoyed walking in the rain with umbrellas. They decided the enjoyment of this experience could be maximized by building their own pressure-activated web of LEDs to install under their umbrella. Thus, with the help of an Arduino, some 4051 multiplexers, a lot of wire and a lot of solder, they set off on their path to success.
