Harry Askham decided to make the most out of his broken wrist by adding some beautiful NeoPixels to his cast! Check out more on github.
the set-up is as follows, glued, soldered and taped up in an amateur fashion:
an adafruit gemma superglued to my cast
a neopixel ring superglued to my cast, hooked up to 5v, ground and D1 on the gemma
a neopixel jewel superglued to my cast, hooked up to 5v, ground and D2 on the gemma
a momentary switch, pulling D0 on the gemma to ground (code adds a pullup resistor to make the switch function)
a lipoly battery powering the gemma
plug the gemma on your arm into your usb port like a minor character in a cyberpunk novel, write the sketch in this repo using the ardiuno ide, and power up.

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. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!
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.
