Make a small animated necklace using this Adafruit Trinket/Gemma Space Invader pendant tutorial

Pac Man is my spirit animal.

Okay, not really. But as a child of the 80’s, video arcade games were a huge cultural phenomenon of my formative years.

Tiny affordable microcontrollers are a cultural phenomenon of today’s generation.

This project bridges the generations to create an animated LED necklace or charm that you can customize to create a retro-style personal “totem video game creature.” It’s a small project, good for electronics novices and group workshops. And you’ll have something eye-catching to wear and show off afterward.
