 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi!
I just got my Arduino LilyPad and now i would like to make a wearable thing. I have skiing jacket with lots of pockets. Once i saw a mp3 control soft keys ... but i think i cant do it with my player.
Maybe someone has a good idea what to make Lilypad do inside my winter jacket.  :smiley

Illuminated turn signals (or maybe a scrolling message matrix) on the back of the jacket controlled from a little keypad on your cuff.

i was thinking about inbuilt mobile phone or walkie talkie, but these dont need Arduino to work.

Like this



Also some cool thoughts:
* inbuilt heart rate monitor
* inside / outside jacket temperature

Daft punk EL suit!!!

Okay, not neccessarily needing arduino, maybe make it sound responsive or have a built in synth controlled by "keys" sewn into the fabric.

You should also put a glowing white cross on the front.

Go French electronica!

The other day in a shopping mall, I saw someone selling T-shirts with guitar printed on them and you can play them with your hands. They also sell T-shirts with music spectral bars (A better word?!) that you can hook up to your mp3 player. I didn't blow my cover as a regular person to buy one of them ($35~$40USD). I might have been made right there  ;D

liudr, thinkgeek.com has many t-shirts similar to what you're talking about - wearable drum kits, guitars, and so on.

Why not a "real" wearable? Couple an Arduino (maybe a Mega or something else bigger) with a Nokia color LCD and lens system for monocle HMD/HUD, add a chorded keyboard (or glove), GPS/accelerometer, and a cellular/wifi link shield...

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

I picked up a cyberdog t-quelizer for £2.50 in a charity shop once - looked like it'd never been worn.  I've worn it once.

It's a great idea, but I'm glad I paid £2.50 not £50 for it.

Have you seen Imogen Heap's twittdress ? I don't remember, but I think it was made with Arduino!
