Introduction: How to Make LED ICE SKATE
I put neopixel LEDs on my ice skate. Every time the microphone, which is connected with the Arduino board, hears any noisy sound. It sends a various signals to LEDs. It is easy to make, even for beginners. I shared codes and instructions. Let’s try it together!
Step 1: Preparing Parts

Select a waterproof product. There are many options to select it. Waterproof is better than a regular LED, but it could be more expensive. This project will be outside, particularly the icy environment. I highly recommend a waterproof version.
Step 2: Solder the Circuit Like This
Mic Sensor - D2
Neopixel - D3
Step 3: Glue It for Water Resistance
Hot melt glue is always good at insulating. It prevents the parts from wetting(even though it looks not beautiful)
Step 4: Attach It Onto Your Ice Skate
You can attach it by using hot melt but it turned out that it is not strong sticky especially under cold weather. I think I need to find more effective way.
Step 5: Field Test and Play!
I love this color!!
Step 6: Alternative Way
If you don’t want to make by yourselves, you can buy this product. But it is not be customized.
