Lightning LoL Necklace Wearable created by RobotGrrl #3dthursday

LightnightLOLNecklaceWearable

Lightning LoL Necklace Wearable created by RobotGrrl:

The inspiration for the face plate idea came from Buddy 4000. We noticed that the light can shine though its plastic, because of the low infill percentage, so figured the same would be true if the design was only 4 layers (and 2 layers on the lightning bolt).

There was one point where this whole project didn’t work. When soldering the Diavolino and LoL Shield together, the height must have slipped- which caused the reset button to always be pushed. Somehow we were able to desolder this… even though it was tightly squished between the two. Phew!

I wonder if all wearable electronic projects are like this- if people come up to you just because it’s something different and want to know more. Perhaps more world-wide friendliness & curiosity could be an unexpected result from wearable electronics!

So, it worked and we were able to get people to talk to us. I extremely recommend this to other shy/not-exactly-social people.

To be honest, I never really considered wearable electronics that interesting. Now, after seeing the social aspect of it first hand… it’s kind of fascinating! I may want to try a project or two with a Flora or Lilypad.

The LoL Necklace can be found on Thingiverse here (thing:98078), with the .stl and raw Inventor files (except we removed the lightning bolt, feel free to come up with your own design!).
