Here is a quick build on a light up gloves which was an after dinner project to squeeze one in before the contest deadlines. The concept is here for anyone to improve upon.
The light up gloves use an Adafruit Flora arduino variant. The lighting device is an Adfruit Neopixel ring which contains 16 individually addressable RGB LED elements.
Ooo, and that shiny disco ball fabric is just fabulous.
Make these cool gloves to have fun for use in the clubs, at home, or anywhere, especially in Colorado.
Step 1: Get a handle on materials...
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.
