Overview and Materials

Science + Technology + Engineering + Art + Math = STEAM

Everyone loves funky goggles and the Adafruit Neopixel rings are perfect for building a flashy pair. To kick it up a notch, we STEAMed up these goggles with some high tech sensors and a bit of applied math and physics.

The goggles are controlled by a Flora microcontroller with a LSM303 accelerometer/magnetometer to track the motion of the wearer’s head. A simple physics engine implements virtual pendulum display on the LED rings that swings in response to the motion of the wearer. The effect is much like a pair of hyperactive electronic googly eyes.

Everywhere we go with these, people ask us where they can get a pair!
