From the Forums: IR Controlled NeoPixel Glasses with 3D Printed Frames (VIDEO) #3DxMedicine #3DxWearables

IR Controlled NeoPixel Glasses with 3D Printed Frames.

I designed these glasses as a tool to help improve eye contact for children with speech delays. My 2 year old son has a speech delay and it can be difficult for him to maintain good eye contact during the speech exercises we do together. Eye contact is important to help reinforce the proper lip/facial movements when making different sounds.

After a first prototype showed promising results, I made this enclosed version with 3D printed frames. They are a bit bulky and bit heavy, but they are only worn for 30 minutes sessions. The 24 pixel ring seems to be the proper size to draw attention to the eyes without obscuring them.

I will post the related files for these after I’ve had some more time to experiment. I probably need to add some more animation modes to keep thing interesting. If anyone is interested in the files in their current state, just let me know and I will make them available. Any suggestions are welcome.

Parts:

  • 5v Trinket
  • 2 24-NeoPixel Rings
  • IR Sensor
  • Mini NEC Remote
  • 500 mAH LIPO
  • 3D Printed Frames (Natural & White PLA)
