This Crazy Police Hat Will Make You Laugh #WearableWednesday
I’m always amazed by the ideas makers have and this hat is no exception. It happened to hit my mailbox from Hackster.io recently, and the maker is HomeMadeGarbage. I’m not sure if that refers to the fact that recycled parts are often incorporated or whether the person just believes that their projects are just over the top. Actually it could be both! This spinning light atop a headband is actually voice activated, and if you listen carefully you can hear the girl making fun sounds to keep it going.
Inside the PET cap is some Adafruit parts including a Trinket microcontroller (which is tiny and perfect for this project) as well as a NeoPixel ring. A motor spins with a light blocking plate around the NeoPixel ring, causing the light flicker effect. Of course there is a mic to trigger the action by audio, which is really the best part. If you want to start a town watch group for your neighborhood, this could be a great project. Here’s the Trinket 3.3V you’ll need to get soldering. Have fun and play it safe!
