LED Blinking Tote Bags – 8tote at Make: Tokyo Meeting 02


These Dia de los Muertos-style tote bags with blinking skull eyes were shown at the latest Make: Japan event, the Make: Tokyo Meeting 02 held at Tama Art University. 8tote (or “Mitsubachi Tote” in Japanese) made these tote bags using the LilyPad Arduino with great success. They describe the experience quite adorably on their blog:

We made our bags controlled with LilyPad Arduino (kawaii microcontroller board designed for wearables and e-textiles), we were enjoying to succeed blinking our products.
