DIY Handbag with UV sensors #WearableWednesday


IMG 0102 scaled

Thanks for sending this project in Irine!

I live in Italy, in front of the Mediterranean Sea, and you know, we often
have a problem … the sun is too strong!

So I decided to create a handbag with a little trick … a UV sensor who
alerts when too much UV radiation happens. The heart of the handbag is a
Flora, connected with a UV Light Sensor
and two Smart Neopixels. A common USB power pack will supply all the
energy for hours…

With some help and some tutorials I was able to find all the materials and
assembly the project;

the bag is completely handmade, partly with recycled transparent parts from
plastic bottles, partly hand knitted.
The handles are made from PVC pipes.I like the coupling of different
materials.

Every time I go around with my handbag someone will ask about … I’m
really proud of it!
