Nice light up hat project from Bling the Book on Instructables!
This festive e-Textile hat combines the magic of CheerLights with a Particle Photon, a microcontroller that can connect to the cloud to help you with all of your Internet of Things projects! The result of my tinkering was an internet-enabled wearable that changes colors in sync with lights all over the world, in response to Twitter messages mentioning @CheerLights and the name of a desired color.
According to CheerLights’ Twitter bio, “CheerLights is an #internetofthings project by @scharler to synchronize lights to the same color at the same time all around the world.” If you haven’t tried it, prepare to be dazzled and amused by this charming global phenomenon!
