Use the force, Luke. Close your eyes, hold on tight to your light saber and........
Don't touch that dial. No tweaking the knobs. Just wave your hands in front of the two sensitive sensors embedded in this bespoke piece of wearable tech.
The garment has an embedded Adafruit Flora wearable microprocessor to generate R2-D2 theremin like sounds.
And it comes in Adafruit black. Do not fear the dark side.
Can you save Alderaan from destruction by the Death Star?

Step 1: Look Up Here, Not at the Titles, No, Look Down...
You need a few things to make this project.
I used an Adafruit Flora Arduino compatible wearable board as the core of the electronics.
I used an HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Range Sensor (generic from ebay - equivalent is Ping Ultrasonic Sensor)
A photocell detector sensor (from an assortment pack found at Radio Snacks, bigger sensor should be more sensitive)
Battery pack for the Flora (3 AA, 4.5v)
a piezo buzzer to use as a speaker
A bra for the foundation...I made mine
If custom making your bra, you will need to know how to sew
I have a sewing machine and serger which makes it easy to construct such a garment
Various felt scraps for the other details
CAUTION: Soldering and sewing are inherently dangerous. Use caution. Always learn from a certified Jedi Master before attempting to use a light saber.
