WiFi Hotspot LED Jacket with #Trinket and @Raspberry_Pi Zero W

A great wearables project by Debra, aka GeekMomProjects (twitter @GeekMomProjects)!

This particular jacket runs a pre-set pattern on a Trinket M0 that I programmed using a CircuitPython LED code generator. However I have made a version where the Trinket is connected via USB to a RasPi Zero W running as a wireless hotspot and since the Trinket shows up as a drive on the RasPi Zero W, you can program it wirelessly. ABove is her video of programming the LED jacket via an Apache server running on the RasPi Zero W.
She’s programmed the jacket with red, white, and blue animations for the US Fourth of July.
What wearables project have you done recently? Let us know in the comments!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
