A groovalicious eTextile blinky-blink party tutu!
SImple, fast, fun and effective eTextile project for just about anyone.
Step 1: Gather Your Parts
Aniomagic button schemer
Aniomagic lightboards - I ordered 3 sets of 5 light boards in Red, Green and White
Conductive thread - I used 4 ply stainless with 14 ohm resistance
Step 2: Sew the button schemer to the tutu
Be sure the needle fits thru the holes on your electronic parts.
Sew the positive and negative traces that will connect to your power source.
Step 3: Sew lightboards to the tutu
Each board is marked with a series of dots indicating the boards address.
This address determines how that specific LED will respond to the program.
All lightboards with three dots behave the same way. As will all ones, twos, fours and fives.
Sew the lightboards in any location or sequence on the traces for your specific design.
Just be sure the dots always align with the positive trace.
This is whats so great about this product.
You can mix and match the lightboards colors and address on one set of traces.
Seriously, Aniomagic's products are so simple it is like the Apple of wearable computers.
Step 4: Connect the 3V battery
I simply taped the conductive thread directly to the battery.
This is not a long term solution, but will do for the performance and rapid battery changes.
