LED enhanced clothing

Build and program a project using a switch (or switches) and an LED (or LEDs). You may use off-the-shelf switches (pushbutton, momentary contact, etc.) or you may make your own switches. Program the project to “do something” when you press the switch(es) – for example, to blink more frequently every time you close a switch, to gradually increase the frequency of blinking until you “reset” by closing a switch, to turn on different colors as you close a switch, etc.

Embed the project in an article of clothing – a hat, a shoe, a shirt, etc. You may use an existing piece of clothing, or if you feel so motivated, make one.

Demonstrations in class on Tuesday September 16.

  1. Hi,

    How would we connect to a power source for the arduino?
    I feel like I missed a detail… usb cord or power cord don’t seem long enough..
