Glowing Skullcandy Headphones Mod #WearableWednesday

Mod your headphones to glow! Express your personal blinken-style by adding 14 color-changing NeoPixels to a white pair of Skullcandy headphones. This intermediate-level soldering project embeds a FLORA main board in one earphone and uses a piece of ribbon wire to connect to the other earphone. Each pixel is addressable, so the colors an animation possibilities are endless! Watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) or Vimeo, and build your own pair with the complete tutorial on the Adafruit Learning System. Project assistance and modeling by the inimitable Risa Rose!
