Love Project: a Heart-Shaped #IoT Pendant @AdafruitIO #ESP8266 #Wearables


Techiesms on Youtube built a internet-enabled heart-shaped pendant PCB which lights up when contacted by another pendant wearer. Techiesms writes: “They are internet connected pendants named as Love Pendants which can help you to share your feelings to your loved one on a whole new level.”

This project is the miniature version of my previous project called, “Connected Message Lamps” (https://youtu.be/5pWRA74EvRs). When I uploaded this project, one guy named Pranshu messaged me and said, I want to make this similar project connected lamps but in a small form factor and give it to my mom so that whenever I’m missing her I can just press the button and send her my feelings.

Each of these pendants (powered by an ESP8266) are connected to WiFi and communicate over multiple feeds using the Adafruit IO MQTT Broker. When the button on one pendant is pressed, the other pendant glows.

If you’d like to build one for yourself and a loved one – you can read the full writeup for this project here. The code used by techiesms is available on GitHub.
