Create a tacky sweater controlled by your phone! It's easy to put together this Bluefruit and NeoPixel matrix circuit to display snowflakes in a sweater, and control the animation and color using the Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect app for iOS or Android.
This is an easy project to build but probably not best for a "first project" as there are a lot of concepts being mixed together and the matrix can use quite a lot of power. You can build it with any of our Bluefruit products and the microcontroller of your choice, such as FLORA with its BLE module, or the all-in-one Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE.
Before you begin, read and understand the following prerequisite guides:
- NeoPixel Uberguide
- Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE or
- Getting Started with Adafruit FLORA and FLORA BLE
- Battery Powering Wearable Electronics
- Adafruit Guide to Excellent Soldering
