“Bend & Snap” tutorial bag #WearableWednesday

Thanks to Stephanie for sending in her student project! Read more about the project here.

The Bend and Snap Tutorial Bag is not only a handy mechanism for visualizing and understanding state management in coding, but a tool to help you unleash your femininity à la Elle Woods.

State 0: Inactive.


State 1: Spot a man. Drop bag. “Bend…” LEDs light up directing user what to do. (If the next step is not reached, the bag returns to its inactive state.)


State 2: Bend over and grab handle of bag… and snap! The flex sensor in the handle activates the words “and Snap.”

State 3: If completed successfully, three exclamation points activate. You have successfully completed the Bend and Snap Tutorial.


You can accessorize the Bend and Snap Tutorial Bag. I had fun with the project and made a Fendi-inspired Karl doll for the bag. As Elle Woods teaches us, there’s no need to sacrifice your fashion sense and style when power dressing.
