Wearable electronics clothing and accessories continue to remain very popular with designers and fashion lovers alike. Adafruit has featured a great number of wearable projects. Many of them have required sewing skills, electronic skills or both.
Bright Wearables is a recent company that has designed a board which interfaces with a BBC micro:bit or Adafruit CLUE board. The Bright Board may be incorporated into one's own designs or paired with a number of backpack and handbag styles specifically designed to highlight the multicolored, programmable LEDs and the board's display.
This project pairs a Bright Wearables crossbody bag and Bright Board with the Adafruit CLLE to provide a colorful, changeable picture display surrounded by lights. It would look great shopping, socializing or for nightlife.
This project uses the Bright Board by BrightWearables.com. The board works with both the BBC micro:bit and Adafruit CLUE. It contains 12 nice RGB DotStar LEDs in a circle, an on/off switch and a battery pack.
You can place the Bright Board into your own purse or wearable with the knowledge that all the electronics are safe from jostling (no finicky metallic thread like in some projects).
Bright Wearables sells purses and backpacks specifically made to have the Bright Board snap in. This project uses the Grace crossbody phone bag (which comes in three colors). All the bags allow the LEDs and the micro:bit/CLUE display to show through the bag.
The bags and the Bright Board may be purchased as a bundle. For this project, selecting a bundle with the bag of your choice + the Bright Board without the micro:bit board may be what you want.
