Joshua Herbert made this vest with 324 LEDs! Brookleynn Morris caught up with him at the Exploratorium wearables event last week and writes in:
Joshua Herbert’s Pixeldelic leather vests are covered in 324 LEDs that can be programmed to play any pattern or image. Anything seen on a computer screen, including videos right off of YouTube, live video and hand drawn patterns can be shown on the vest.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
