Put a Dance Party on Your Finger #WearableWednesday

cover_SENSableThing

Recently I blogged about socks with sensors that could be monitored in the washing machine. Well, Guido Burger has created another project with his pico Platinchen microcontroller–the SENSable THING. This ring can react to your movements, causing beautiful colors to circulate over its NeoPixel ring.

Guido built a 9DOF sensor into his microcontroller, so it is great for small spaces and there are quite a few options for programming motion. The ring itself was 3D printed and everything just clips or slides into place without screws. Interestingly, Guido went with a lower 3V power using a coin cell, but it seems to work just fine with the NeoPixel ring. Pixels are mighty bright!

Definitely the programming presents the most fun for the ring. Developing certain movements like spins with corresponding color patterns and then doing some light painting camera shots would be cool. You can check out Guido’s project, including 3D print files on Hackster.io. With all the NeoPixel fun going on you should also check out our FLORA NeoGeo Watch. Not only will you get colorful time, but you can also program your fave location and use it to navigate. I would have it lead me to my favorite picnic spot in the park. Where do you want to go?
