This week Andrew Arace shared his cozy Beach/Concert Blanket (with sewn in flickering LEDs!) in our community.

Outdoor blanket from Target

Adafruit GEMMA v2

4 Adafruit Neopixels

Li-po battery

Conductive thread

4-wire 24awg spool from nearby going-out-of-business RadioShack

I broke the seams of the edging, and threaded the wire through 3 sides of the blanket, and re-sewed the seams.
I came up with a creative conductive thread to solid wire connection by sewing down a wire, and used 3 wires of the 4 strand for power and data.

This week on the blog we shared Frederick Vandenbosch’s build for his awesome magic lamp project

The idea for this little project is to have a lamp which can be turned on or off simply by moving it on a desk.

A wireless charging base is built into the desk’s surface, and a circuit with microcontroller and LEDs gets powered wirelessly using the charging coil.
