FLORA Magician Glove #WearableWednesday

FYI, the application is a magic wand for live theatre use. The Flora is sewn into the cuff of a glove, the accelerometer into the wrist. I’m using a combination of conductive thread and fabric to place contacts on the fingers and palm. The wand has metal plates that connect with these contacts when the actor grips the wand. The wand also has a neopixel embedded in the tip, with an acrylic crystal on top of it. The idea is that different actions from the actor will trigger different “spells.” So a gentle wave does one thing, a sharp twist initiates a different effect, etc. I’d like to expand this to include several possible responses based on the accelerometer data, but for now I’m just thrilled to have two! I’m more of a theatre technician than a computer programmer. This is a fairly new world for me and I really appreciate your help. Here’s a photo of the device itself: The paint on the wand isn’t done, but you’ll get the idea.
