I saw this project a while ago called f.lashes - basically its a mini strip of LEDs that are glued (using fake eyelash adhesive) to just above your eyes. A small circuit board is secured to the back of your head with hair pins and thin skin coloured/copper wires connect board and LEDS. The board has a couple of buttons to implement different modes, one of which matches movement with flashing.
It's a simple fun project, and one which was launched and did well on Kickstarter but they aren't available to buy anymore.
I'm going to a festival in a couple of weeks and would really like to make my own. Any suggestions on where to start.
- Should I use an Arduino lillypad? They are often used for wearables, or a Nano, or not use an Arduino at all.
- What kind of LEDs? SMDs? Would I have to run two wires to each LED in the strip (I think the example uses 12 LEDs
- Any advice on beat matching or vibration matching so the LEDs flash according to the users movement, or the music you are listening to
Any help would be greatly appreciated
