This Scarf Will Make You Look Like Bravest Warrior’s Worm #WearableWednesday

I discovered Jeremy Zschau’s intriguing Aeon Worm Scarf while looking at some NeoPixel posts on YouTube. I can’t say that I watch Bravest Warriors, but I certainly appreciate this more fashionable form of a rather creepy character. It was created with an Adafruit GEMMA microcontroller and NeoPixels on a base of Shibori fabric. Jeremy spent quite a bit of time creating the design and his Flickr album is absolutely gorgeous, right down to the circuit diagram. It’s really cool to see how swatches, sketches and inspirations morphed into this scarf. Now Jeremy is working to refine the fins/bubbles, both in size and fabric type. I’m sure the original ones would feel a bit in the way and he admits they are more for costume appeal. So, in his latest video you can see a test using a sample of the smaller size with chiffon fabric next to the original scarf.

It’s nice to see the softer diffusion in this project and the curvy nature of the fabric. The effect is more organic and less the edge so often seen in wearable tech. I’d like to see curtains made in this style, or perhaps a parachute seamed skirt. I see it as a metaphor of escape—be free light. Want to learn how to make your own scarf using LEDs? Check out our Chameoleon Scarf which enables NeoPixels to match your outfit through a color sensor. Your outfits will never be the same.
