Step 2: Step 2: the Build

Every LED should be connected with a resistor from pin 2 to pin 10.

Connect the ground GND pin to the ground rail of the breadboard and connect the button to the 5v and the analog ground GND pin.

Rebuid this circuit with your own arduino.

Sew 1 sock to the back of the hat to put the powerbank in and 2 underneath the hat to put the arduino and breadbord in.
