Jill Dawson can be found doing tech projects of all sorts, from paper circuits to robots. However, she seems really passionate about sound reactive fashions. She recently created this FLORA sound reactive hat, which has NeoPixels dotted in a wave around the base. It’s based on Lina Wassong’s Instructable for a sound reactive skirt. One of the nice things found in the directions is how to embed NeoPixels in the fabric giving a clean look. Jill had such great success with her hat that she decided to move onto a skirt. Her version looks almost identical to Lina’s with the exception of some added feather decorations, which I like.
The question is whether Jill will wear both fashions simultaneously or whether one is meant for a friend! Either way, both fashions came out beautifully and it’s nice to have a choice in showing off LEDs to music. If you are looking for another version of sound reactive clothing, check out our Ampli-Tie learning guide. It’s all business by day and party by night using a FLORA microcontroller, NeoPixels and a microphone. So, choose the fashion that works for you and get hacking!
