TWO FRIDAS – Seona and Pantea

Here are our initial brainstorming.


Frida props:

  1. Hearts pulsing – We created a code for our hearts and here’s the video of the two LEDs fading in and out.

int led = 9; // the pin that the LED is attached to
int led2 = 8;
int brightness = 0; // how bright the LED is
int fadeAmount = 5; // how many points to fade the LED by

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {
// declare pin 9 to be an output:
pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
pinMode(led2, OUTPUT);

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
// set the brightness of pin 9:
analogWrite(led, brightness);
analogWrite(led2, brightness);

// change the brightness for next time through the loop:
brightness = brightness + fadeAmount;

// reverse the direction of the fading at the ends of the fade:
if (brightness == 0 || brightness == 255) {
fadeAmount = -fadeAmount ;
// wait for 30 milliseconds to see the dimming effect

Here is the image of the heart we are going to embroider onto each of our hearts.



2. LED Strips – we are still working on the code of the LED lights going back and forth between the hearts.

3. Flower hairband



We are going to be using one small LittleTiny Arduino board, red LEDs, 5V NeoPixel Strips, a tube to link up the LEDs. We may choose to get another arduino board for the separate heart LED if we think the link between the LEDs doesn’t work. We are also going to be using the power bank instead of the battery packs.
