An arduino-powered flashing hat
In Technocamps we’re going to be running an easter holiday workshop on wearable computing, which will use lilypad arduinos to build cool things you can wear. We’ve got a half-tem holiday workshop going on right now (“Making Robots See”) so I’ve been tasked with going up there and doing a short talk on wearables. So I made one:
It’s really basic – just four LEDs and a short program that cycles back and forth lighting them up in turn – but it was really fun to put together. It didn’t take that long either.
If you know a young person (11-19) in Ceredigion who fancies joining in with the wearables workshop you can register online now. We’ve got a couple of people coming up from London who’ve been doing most of the work in putting it together, including Rain and Sophie from MzTek. This is the booking link – http://wearabletechnologybootcamp.eventbrite.co.uk/. We’ll be doing more interesting stuff than just making flashing hats.
