New York City finally repealed its very outdated Cabaret Law.
So let’s dance.
You’ll need the right outfit for the occasion.
This coat is a wild fashion piece with an unexpected ability: it lights up as the surrounding light dims. Like a creature with bioluminescent qualities, a werewolf, or a regular person leaving their workplace for a party, this coat takes on a new personality from day to night.
The circuitry uses a photoreceptor input sensor (LDR), which communicates two simple messages to the Huzzah board–it’s dark out and it’s light out. If it’s dark out, the sequin LEDs will magically light up ✨
I’m excited to share this project with you. I’m a novice Arduino-user and first-time electronics-solderer, so I’m confident that anyone can recreate this!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
