5 wearables to make with littleBits #WearableWednesday

Make posted 5 wearables projects to make with littleBits for their “Wearables Week” and the projects are super cute!

For those that arent’ familiar with littleBits: littleBits is a library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets for prototyping, learning, and fun. Given the small physical size of littleBits, we love thinking of new ways to use them to make wearables. Here are some of our favorites:

Light-up Stomping Shoes (seen above)

These glowing, sound-activated kicks are perfect for a night out on the town. Decorate a pair of sneakers with the littleBits light wire, add a sound trigger, and start dancing. The stomping of your feet and louder ambient noise generate the light and you get your groove on. This project is easy to make and will inevitably make you the star of the dance floor.

Light-up Party Jacket

If you liked the stomping shoes, here is another flashy wearable project that will take your outfit to the next level. This light-up jacket pulses to the tunes on your MP3 player. To create this project, we used littleBits light wires, bright LEDs, and the microphone module, which translates sound into the electronic language of littleBits.

Sound-activated Bowtie

One of our favorites from the holidays, this sound activated bowtie moves when you speak, what better greeting when you meet friends for the party? We used a sound trigger, dimmer, pulse, and servo to create this interaction. When the sound trigger hears your voice, it activates the servo, which moves the bowtie. The dimmer and pulse are used to control the angle and speed of the servo’s motion.
