Monica’s NeoPixel Circuit and Halloween Kickoff

NeoPixel Exercise

Halloween Costume Ideas

Idea 1 – Dancer’s Magic Sleeves

The idea here is that the fairy lights or LED strips hidden underneath a mesh (ballerina-style sleeves) turn on when an accelerometer detects motion.

Shopping list: Accelerometer, sleeves, fairy lights (I already have some, must check that I have enough), TBD with Becky: battery pack needs and resistor needs

Idea 2 – Fairy wings

A similar idea here. A series of fairy lights or LED strips will be sewn onto fairy wings. The lights will light up when they detect light. The photo-sensor will be located on a tubular belt that is attached to the wings and through which any wires run.

Shopping list: Photometer (I already have one, but must test that it works), sleeves, fairy lights (I already have some, must check that I’ve enough), fairy wings, belt and straps. TBD with Becky: check battery pack needs and resistor needs

Idea 3 – Rain vest

Several fairy lights or LED strips will be hanging from the shoulders of a vest. Over the starting points of these lights will be some poly-fill or fluff that looks like clouds.

Shopping list: Black vest, alternatively I can make it myself, fairy lights (I already have some, must check that I’ve enough), poly-fill. TBD with Becky: check battery pack needs and resistor needs
