Kevin Hoyt commented on our Punk LED Collar:
We did something similar as a workshop for kids at the WebVisions Barcelona conference. Used the project to introduce electronics concepts and basic soldering skills. Once you’ve got it down, you can mix up LED colors and band colors to match your outfit or just your preferences. Good next steps skill builders include getting the LEDs to blink in sequence with another pot to control speed.
Awesome to see this as a kit!
Punk LED Collar Kit – Red LEDs – Make your own studded choker with an LED twist! This kit of parts comes with all the materials you’ll need for a punk style LED collar. Ten juicy diffused red LEDs adorn a high-quality black leather collar that fits necks 12-15 inches (30 to 38 centimeters). Attach the included battery holder and potentiometer, used to adjust the brightness of the LEDs. The simple circuit is powered by a single CR2032 battery (we provide an extra for maximum glow time). Follow our project tutorial (soldering required) to build your own punk LED collar and be the star of your next party or parade!
