I was inspired to do this project after going to Bonnaroo for the first time last year. The idea I had was to take a programmable belt kit, hook it up to an Arduino microcontroller and microphone and make a wearable VU meter.
By popular demand, we now have a project tutorial for how to make your own programmable, ultra-blinky LED belt. Perfect for parties, raves, parades, weddings, funerals, and bar mitzvahs. Wear it with pride, wear it with blinky! Follow our soldering tutorial to build your own heirloom LED belt, and hand it down to your grandkids.
