Bithead made four awesome costumes for his family using a lot of Adafruit products such as RGB LED flexi-strips, touch wheel controller for analog RGB LED strips, solderless analog RGB LED strip clip, and 8×8 LED matrix with I2C backpack. Via the Adafruit forums!
After the first suit was successfully completed for my daughter, I went forward with creating the same suits for my son, wife and myself. As expected, I got better each time and had all 4 suits created very quickly.
The touch-wheel controller is very easy to use – on/off, touch a color to activate the color, and a mode button to cycle through various colors and even some automatic sequencing. Very cool.
