Got a costume ball coming up? Learn to adorn masquerade masks with LEDs, three ways! This guide will show you how to make three masks at different difficulty levels:
Super Simple Sequin Mask: A few LED sequins and battery pack, no programming or microcontroller required! Just a little soldering and glueing will get you illuminated accents in under an hour.
NeoPixel GEMMA Mask: If it’s color-changing animations you crave, wire up some individual NeoPixels and a GEMMA microcontroller. Use our sample code or write your own animations! 1-4 hours, depending on your soldering experience
Audio-Reactive Mask: A microphone monitors audio levels and uses loudness to control the brightness of some LED sequins. Use our sample code or mod it up to do something different. 1-4 hours, depending on your soldering experience
