Becky’s latest wearables project, over at adafruit, combines three components from their FLORA sewable electronics ecosystem—the microcontroller, the accelerometer/compass module, and the RGB LED “pixels”—to create a no-solder sewable circuit that sparkles when you sashay! Twinkles when you tiptoe! Glimmers when you galavant!

Hmmm. “Coruscates when you canter” is probably overdoing it. You get the idea.

Model: Risa Rose

Beautiful work from Becky, as usual, in both design and documentation.

And if none of those verbs suits your personal branding, the project could easily be adapted to make, say, a raincoat that radiates when you ramble, a duster that dazzles when you decamp, a serape that scintillates when you saunter… (Repeat and fade.)
