Issue 20 HackSpace magazine: Modular NeoPixel patches by @sophywong #Gemma #Adafruit #NeoPixels #Wearables #CircuitPython @HackSpaceMag

The new HackSpace Magazine Issue 20 highlights Modular NeoPixel patches by Sophy Wong.

What could possibly be more amazing than hook-and-loop tape? Conductive hook-and loop tape! That’s right, your favourite fastener is available in a silver-coated version that is perfect for making a modular circuit with custom swappable components. In this tutorial, we’ll use it to create modular NeoPixel patches for a jacket.

The microcontroller and battery for this circuit will be located in the jacket, and be connected to the loop side of the hook-and-loop tape. NeoPixel LEDs will be sewn into the removable patches. Whichever patch you slap onto your jacket will light up!

A Gemma M0 microcontroller from Adafruit will control the NeoPixels, and we’ll program the Gemma with CircuitPython.

You can read Sophy’s full tutorial in Issue 20 of HackSpace Magazine (PDF pages 96 to 97).
