This is REV 2 of a personal project–a wearable electronics hoodie that I devised and assembled in February 2017. Construction of each element is not yet polished; I need to invent a better-looking power cabling solution (perhaps a fabric cable harness or fabric conduit), get a more flexible solar panel or affix the panel to the jacket more securely, etc. Digital voltage rail (for the Flora MCU and “NeoPixels”) is 3.7V, using a LiPo battery with 4400mAh capacity.
