How to Make an Epic Ironman Blaster Glove #WearableWednesday #Arduino #Wearabletech

I was just thinking about flex sensors when I came across this cool project by Michael Joseph. Michael’s son had a very specific request for Halloween this year—Ironman’s glove. What’s a maker to do, but get out the Arduino and start hacking! You can see the flex of the one finger on the glove causing the lights to trigger on the Neopixel ring. I’m not sure which Arduino was chosen, but I probably would have used a FLORA and created a battery pocket in the wrist area of the glove. This is really coming along nicely and hopefully Michael will post a video of his son using it in time for Halloween. If you want to hack together your own costume pieces, check out our wearable friendly FLORA microcontroller. It’s LiPoly ready and has a fleet of sensors that allow for many trigger possibilities. Whether you want superhero or super scary, this is the controller that makes it easy.
