Some Neopixels for Your Pocket Watch #WearableWednesday

This is a fun project by Michael Mosier, lover of Neopixels. He found a classy pocket watch on Ebay and decided to use its decorative cut-out for some glowy goodness. An Adafruit Trinket microcontroller allows a coiled small Neopixel strip to come to life, while a bit of Thermoplast diffuses the lid. Michael just added a LiPo charging backpack to facilitate recharging the battery. It’s a real beauty and steampunkers and cosplayers should definitely consider this hack. If you are new to electronics, check out our Neopixel Cosmic Turtle Necklace Learning Guide. It’s very similar and shows you how to put circuits in jewelry and add some sculpted diffusion. It also introduces the idea of using a magnetic clasp, which is another cool wearable trick. When you’ve got your new bling, send us a video. We can never get enough Neopixel love here.


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA.
