LED Dance Top

2 August 2015

I made Adam a LED dance top for his up-coming school dance.

I got of my ideas for this from http://www.instructables.com/id/Glow-like-the-sun-with-this-sound-reactive-LED-cyb/

Attach:P1070398-Small.jpg Δ I cut some strips of paper that were the same size as the LED strip segments so Adam could create a pattern.

Attach:P1070400-Small.jpg Δ Then I cut the LED strips to length and laid it out.

Attach:P1070401-Small.jpg Δ After hot gluing the segments in place I started soldering wires to link up the segments.

Attach:P1070402-Small.jpg Δ Tested the first part.

I added a cheap RF LED controller to adjust brightness and flashing/pulsing rate. It's powered from three 18650 battery cells I pulled out of a long dead laptop - which should last a couple of hours.

He plans to wear this under his ninja costume - double awesome.
