Thanks to Dider for sending in his student project! He writes:
I would like to share with you a wearable electronic project of three students (age 16) “Night Call Jacket”. They built it during their studies, it’s a classic jacket improved with electronic for day and night use.
A removable solar panel charge a li-ion battery in front pocket for devices. Then, when the night has come, a led matrice can display text or pattern for fun in club or visibility on the road…
I really thank Becky STERN for all her tutorials on wearable electronic, the solar part of the jacket was inspired by Solar Boost Bag tutorial from Adafruit.
Check out some more photos of the project here and the making of video below.
