EL Wire & LED Wheelchair

lightupwheelchair

Very glowy wheelchair! On Instructables:

I always found that those safety lights for bicyclists on the market were never good enough when riding in the dark. That got me thinking about people who use wheelchairs and how unsafe the night could be when they want to go out. So here’s what I came up with:

I decked out this ordinary wheelchair with EL wire on the spokes and LED lights underneath the seat. The LED light is incredibly bright, so I put that underneath the seat and it gives the whole wheelchair a luminescent glow that looks really cool at night. You’d definitely be hard to miss with a ride like this at night.

All come with 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) of our high brightness, long life EL wire, a handy 2xAA pocket inverter and a pack of extras like heat shrink, copper tape and foam padding – stuff you’ll want to use if you decide to mod the EL wire.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
