Light up those warm nights at the beach or summer camp with this simple soft circuit bracelet.
We were inspired by Etsy’s nautical knot bracelet tutorial and when we read the word “rhinestones” we immediately substituted LEDs. Read on to stitch up your own illuminated friendship bracelet!
For this project you will need:
• paracord or rope
• 2x LED sequins (we recommend white or blue for brightest effect)
• 2x CR1220 coincell batteries
• 2-ply conductive thread
• magnetic clasp
• embroidery floss
• sharp sewing needle
• blunt tapestry needle
• thread to match paracord
• tape (masking or gaffers)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
