LED Party Coat #Huzzah #WearableWednesday


Loving this coat from ellenhrose on Instructables:

New York City finally repealed its very outdated Cabaret Law.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!
