Using Lilypad and some other pieces, build a suit to play flashlight tag with your friends.

Step 1: Parts

Picture of Parts

1 Battery

1 Old T-Shirt

1 Rectangular piece of fabric

5 LED's

1 Light Sensor

1 Lilypad Arduino

1 Vibration Motor

Conductive Thread and Needle

Insulated Wire (and wire strippers)

1 Light Wooden Board

Step 2: Add the LED's

Attach conductive thread to the pins on the vibration motor, then place it flat on the board.

Step 5: Secure the Motor

Secure the motor with electric tape.

Step 6: Assemble!

Flip over the wooden board, and secure the cloth. Then, stitch the pins from the motor to the A4 pin and ground pin of the arduino.

Step 7: Attach the Insulated Wire

Hook the ends of the insulated wire through the ground pin, the hot pin, and the A5 pin. Cinch tightly.

Step 8: Sew the Shirt

Sew a large pocket into the inside of the shirt, large enough to fit the board. Place the board into the pocket, with the motor facing inwards.

Step 9: Attach the Sensor

Poke the other end of the wire through the shirt. Wire the ground to the - pin, wire the power supply to the + pin, and wire pin A5 to the S pin by hooking and cinching, as before.

Step 10: Install the Code

An initial program can be found at my github, but don't be afraid to modify it and play around!

Step 11: Turn It On!

...and go play!
