Too late to change?
I thought of another idea for my plush nightlight that I think I’m a bit more excited about.
I am thinking of creating a plush banana that you can zip closed. Once the banana has been “peeled” and the zipper crosses over the conductive thread the light turns on and it glows from within.
Perhaps the brightness can be controlled by the number of sections that have been peeled, ie- one for dim and two for bright.
For my plush nightlight I’m thinking of creating a stack of pancakes with goodies on top.
The butter, blueberries and raspberries would sparkle with the appropriate colored light as you shake the plush toy.
I had originally tested this by limiting the strand to 3 pixels and then changing the colors of the strip. In practice I imagine that I would sew each colored pixel in at the the right spot.
The test that I photographed is only using one pixel because the strand had a really poor connection.
