Great project using a FLORA to make a motion sensing tie! Read more here.
what is this project? This is a project that involve 2 bracelet and 2 persons team project. One part of the project is design as the input and the other part of the bracelet is output.My original design of the project is one person wearing bracelet on their arm, has an Adafruit flora, a motion sensor (flora accelerometer) and jumper wire and the other person arm would have led light, however we change it led light will be put inside of a tie and glove will have inside the accelerometer and the flora mainboard. When one teammate with the motion sensor tilt his/her arm(glove), the other teammate would wear a tie that would be output for led light display.
This project is a different for various reason first the name is different, second the older project was bracelets and they use processor. We use a glove and inserted the accelerometer and flora atmega and put RGB led light inside of a tie. The original project the designer use processor and code to make the led light go around in a circle however in my project the led light is program to random and we are only using arduino software.
Featured Adafruit Products!
FLORA – Wearable electronic platform: Arduino-compatible: FLORA is Adafruit’s fully-featured wearable electronics platform. It’s a round, sewable, Arduino-compatible microcontroller designed to empower amazing wearables projects.
FLORA comes with Adafruit’s support, tutorials and projects. Check out dozens of FLORA tutorials on the Adafruit Learning System, with more added every week by Becky Stern, director of wearable electronics, and our dedicated wearables staff. Read more.
FLORA Accelerometer/Compass Sensor – LSM303 – v1.0: Add motion and direction sensing to your wearable FLORA project with this high precision 3-axis Accelerometer+Compass sensor. Inside are two sensors, one is a classic 3-axis accelerometer, which can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuring gravity) or how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space. The other is a magnetometer that can sense where the strongest magnetic force is coming from, generally used to detect magnetic north. By combining this data you can then orient yourself. Read more.
