In this all-sewing (no soldering) project, you’ll learn to stitch up a textile slide actuator to control color changing LEDs using the GEMMA sewable microcontroller. You will need:
- Soft potentiometer by Plug&Wear
- Adafruit GEMMA
- Sewable NeoPixels
- 3-ply stainless conductive thread
- 3xAAA battery pack and JST extension
- Sewing needles and plain thread
- Clear nail polish
- Multimeter (optional but useful for troubleshooting)
Before you begin please read these prerequisite guides:
- Conductive Thread
- Introducing GEMMA
- Flora RGB Smart NeoPixels
- Washing Wearable Electronics
- Battery Powering your Wearable Electronics
