This Is What Happens When Your Teacher Asks for a Cocoon #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #DIY #Arduino

Design Academy Eindhoven decided to give its students an unusual challenge—create a LED cocoon that reacts to music. We love this school!!! George Barratt-Jones posted this video of his Arduino creation, which seems to fit the bill. There’s an obvious use of LED strips on the outer cocoon, but the real surprise comes from the reveal near the end of the video where an entire suit of LEDs goes wild. I like this techno take on the idea of cocoon, and the playful peek-a-boo with the lights. There seems to be a mode for the outer inset LED strips for rainbow display while another mode allows for sound. It’s like a rainbow lightning bug, and you never know when it will glow! My favorite part is the detail of the headpiece, which looks like a crown of laser-cut foam. Here’s a look without all the glow.

From the round of applause from fellow classmates, I’d say that George aced this assignment. Can’t wait to hear about the next runway challenge! If you are curious about learning more about the art of pixel, check out our NeoPixel Überguide. It has everything you need to know about connecting, powering and coding these awesome LEDs. Make an everlasting impression with your project and don’t forget to dance it out. We’ll take a video!
