How to Hack a Color Sensing Umbrella #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #DIY

I’m always on the lookout for a color sensing umbrella filled with cheerful LEDs and it appears I’ve found another on Make:. Katy Lee also wanted something to brighten rainy days and created her umbrella in similar fashion to my Florabrella using a Flora microcontroller and the matching Flora color sensor. LED umbrellas make a great safety device since they allow people to be more visible at night, and you can see Katy’s personal LED color patterns on the code posted on her Instructable. I know I’ll always love the rainbow pattern because it brings so many smiles! Congrats to Katie on a successful build and wishing her luck as she embarks on a Kickstarter with her Rainbo Skyz! Just remember that this project is open source and anyone can hack and add sensors to make it their own. Get your start with our learning guide for the Florabrella, and you’ll be sure to have a bright day even when the sun isn’t shining.


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
