Light up light saber t-shirt #WearableWednesday #StarWars
Nice t-shirt project from Instructables user gwfong.
The company I work for had these Jedi t-shirts created as an inside joke. Overall, they are pretty bland. Wanting to jazz it up, I added an illumination effect by placing EL tape atop the lightsaber blade. Since the blade design is very simple, just a straight length, this project is not complicated. The build time only took about 2 hours or so.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
