How-To: Color-Matching Chameleon Scarf

Flora Color Match Scarf

Another cool wearables project from Adafruit Director of Wearable Electronics (and MAKE alum) Becky Stern. In this design, Becky is showing off the capabilities of Adafruit’s FLORA wearable color sensor. She’s sewn it into a circuit (with a FLORA microcontroller and 12 FLORA RGB LEDs) on a ruffled scarf intended to diffuse the light and give a softer effect. Point the sensor at any color you want to match, press the button, and the microcontroller adjusts the LEDS accordingly.
