Thanks to Alayna for writing in about this neat body suit! Read more here (video coming soon!).
This is our project titled The BodiMusik Suit.
It is a body suit made for the musician Nona Hendryx. The suit is a one piece spandex dance suit and most of the components are adafruit. The suit uses conductive fabric as triggers. The arms are running an LED sequence
from a Gemma and another set of leds on the leds is connected to an adafruit microphone. The programming is loaded onto 2 Floras and 1 Arduino Fio which also use a BlueSmirf bluetooth chip to communicate.
The suit was designed to be used with Ableton live, so all of the programming was done in Arduino and Max, and imported into Ableton as a Max for Live instrument for ease of use.
