Create the Ultimate Holiday Jumper with Arduino!

This Christmas sweater was shared on the Arduino blog!

We’ve seen plenty of Arduino-equipped holiday sweaters over the years, but none as teched-out as this one. Last Christmas, UK-based Makerspace fizzPOP and electronics retailer Maplin teamed up to create quite the fun and festive jumper.

The aptly named “Ultimate Christmas Jumper” features an Uno, a Mega, an Adafruit FLORA, four 8×8 LED panels, some NeoPixels, a portable 10,000mAh power bank, as well as a pair of electret microphone amplifiers that enable it to react to sounds.

A sewn-on, 3D-printed fireplace holds the display, which as you can see in the video below, flashes a series of holiday images ranging from Santa, to Rudolph, to season’s greetings.

Want to wear one to your next party? Lucky for you, fizzPOP and Maplin have put together a video tutorial to help get you started!
