This Life Force Amulet Will Make You Glow #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #DIY #cosplay

Life Force Amulet

This amulet found on Hackaday has a rustic stone formation that attracts the eye with curiosity. Industrial designer Eric Strebel makes this look easy, but trust it was more complex than you might imagine.

To add to the surreal quality of the amulet, he sourced a stone from a local gem show, bringing his circuit along to get an idea of what the final product would look like. Once [Strebel] had shaped the stone to a more manageable size, he took a polyester filler mold of its rear face to use as a base from which to cast a durable resin housing for the circuit.

The warmth of the cast gives the glow a volcanic feel and Strebel’s “city” of electronics inside creates the heartbeat effect. The piece gets its power from a coin cell holder hidden on the back panel. I especially like the woven hose used for the necklace as it gives a Mad Max feel. If you want to create a simpler amulet, check out our learning guide for the Neopixel Jewel Necklace. In ten minutes you can have the perfect accessory for your costume, using our Gemma or Gemma MO microcontroller. Send us a video of your cosplay creation!
