So I won a pair of Betabrand socks from one of the Instructables contests. The design I selected was out of stock so they offered me a gift certificate instead. I've got plenty of socks to make this
.. Yes, I still have a pair. So I decided to use that to help get a batch of Betabrand brand Disco Open Source Project Disconium
. That is their disco mirror ball like shiny fabric material. It is their softwear development kit they have where you get a 2 yard swatch of Disconium fabric to experiment with. I really haven't thought about using it until now.
You need some liner gloves. These just happen to be some knit utility gloves. You can omit the use of liner gloves if you just want a thin pair of gloves.
You need to have a microprocessor board of some sort to contol some LEDs to light up your gloves. I am repurposing my Adafruit Flora which is designed to be sewn into wearable articles of fine technology and fashion.
Sewing and soldering are good skills to learn and practice. Remember, there are sharp and pointy things involved, be safe.
