Dreamsicle Jacket features light and movement sensors #WearableWednesday
Nice jacket with sensors from Shaeeta Sharar on Vimeo.
Designed, built, and implemented a custom light up wearable jacket design activated with multiple sensors using the Adafruit Flora, NeoPixels, captive touch, lux and gyroscope sensors. Worked within personally set guidelines and time constraints. Oversaw and personally worked on each step of the process including sewing the clothing and circuits as well as programming the code.
FLORA 9-DOF Accelerometer/Gyroscope/Magnetometer – LSM9DS0 – v1.0: Add motion, direction and orientation sensing to your wearable FLORA project with this high precision 9-DOF sensors. Inside are three sensors, one is a classic 3-axis accelerometer, which can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuring gravity) or how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space. The other is a 3-axis magnetometer that can sense where the strongest magnetic force is coming from, generally used to detect magnetic north. The third is a 3-axis gyroscope that can measure spin and twist. By combining this data you can REALLY orient yourself. Read more.
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.
