Sound-Activated and Light-Up Accessories

Introduction: Sound-Activated and Light-Up Accessories

About: Freelance mechanical engineer from the Bay Area.
I made some EL-wire scarves as Christmas presents several years ago. They both have 'sound activated drivers', which means they light up according to ambient sound intensity.

The jacket and hat I made for my high-school's Winter Formal dance.

The mesh tank-top I made for a Deadmau5 concert in October 2011. This one also has a sound activated driver, so it throbs along with the music.

Here's a video of a scarf in action:

    For all the projects here I just used the pre-assembled EL wire drivers you can buy with the wire. There really is no schematic!
