While looking for ways to spice up my formal wear, I came up with the idea of hiding some NeoPixels in a pocket square. The front pocket is great for a number of reasons:
1.) Lots of space to hide a large battery.
2.) White pocket squares (the only kind in my book) make a great diffusion
3.) Pocket squares are often folded in a rectangular fashion. Many gents use
an index card, so a strip of NeoPixels work just as well.
This project could actually be a great gentleman version of the chameleon scarf.
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.
