FLORA + @element14 Challenge – Leslie’s Color Sensor #WearableWednesday

Leslie writes:

I decided to take out the Adafruit Color Sensor today. I must say that this piece is amazingly compact. In fact, I had to get out my magnifying glass just to make sure I was hooking it up correctly. Usually I work with Adafruit’s test programs first, but I was having difficulty getting them to work. It may be because I was working with the FLORA instead of another type of Arduino. Nevertheless, I went straight to a program I felt confident about — the one for the “Chameleon Scarf”. This program has the sensor blink three times reminding you to give it a color swatch. One you apply the color, it will turn your LED’s the same color. Check out my demo…

My next step will be to test my switch. So much to do, but I love it. Oh yeah, did I mention that one of the guys at my hackerspace says that he loves my videos because I act like I’ve had five Redbulls? Just for the record, I’m a decaf Chai Latte with Almond Milk.

Flora get closer challenge adafruit element14 150x150 Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday! 

Eight makers are on a mission to create wearables projects that help you “Get Closer” to others with FLORA, in collaboration with element14. Follow along as they build their projects, posting updates in the element14 Arduino community, and see how their final projects turn out, right here on the Adafruit blog!
