Motion sensor tie project with FLORA #WearableWednesday
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.
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.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
