About half a year ago, after seeing my tech-fashion designs, a friend sent me a music video (I can’t find which video it was anymore. Maybe readers here can help). It had a few human robots in light-up dresses but an additional thing I noticed was their LED nails. I thought it would be cool to make some.
I want to make the nails look natural and not too long or bulky. I also want to use microcontrollers to create a twinkling effect. But since the nails are so small compared with modular electronic components, I have to come up with a solution. What if I make a beautiful bracelet that can hide the electronics inside and link to the nails?
Here comes two versions. I’ll describe the different processes. Design 1 is easier to do which took about 2 hours, whereas design 2 took about 4 hours. Which one do you like more?
