Who knew there was an Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), and what perfect companion for this event than a magical LED daisy backpack. Jonathan Fu has created a vibrant flower with a NeoPixel ring center, as well as LED light pipe petals. Using an Arduino and motion sensors, he has created a fun way for people to interact with the backpack. This appears to be another wearable looking at the theme of proximity and personal space. Based on the pics displayed on the carnival’s site, one can only conclude that getting closer is part of the fun. So, it is no surprise that someone closer to the backpack is rewarded with a faster light pattern. Jonathan’s design is about to be famous and we can’t wait to see pics from this big Vegas event happening the end of this month.
Don’t panic — you still have time to get hardware to make your own colorful daisy. You can even make daisy earrings by adding some fabric petals to our NeoPixel Hoop Earrings. Be the flower.
