How to Make a Mysterious Glowing Flask #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #DIY

The weather in Philly finally has a lack of humidity, which can only mean one thing—winter is coming. Actually that may be true, but really Halloween is right around the corner, which gets me excited about costumes. This spooky flask necklace comes our way thanks to Scott Lackey, a maker and costume/prop lover from Los Angeles. The greenish glow seems mysterious as you see it peeking out through the cork as well as the entire glass concoction. Scott mounted an Adafruit GEMMA microcontroller on the underside of the flask surrounded by a small Neopixel ring. That means this chemical cocktail can be any color you want with the right code, and you don’t have to worry about electronics getting splashed. It’s a simple hack that your steampunk friends will adore as much as your luminescent-loving kids. So, check out Scott’s build on Instructables and make sure you grab one of our Gemma microcontrollers to get started.
