2014 - Lilypad Arduino, Fiber Optics, LED's, Custom 3D designed and 3D printed Nodes.
I created a dress made of fiber optic lights that are controlled by code. The code I wrote causes the lights to twinkle like stars, strobe, or flicker like fire.
• Connecting the fiber optic bundles to the LED head so that light would shine through.
• Sewing with conductive thread, seeing as I have never sewn before.
• Building something that could potentially attach to any type of garment.
• Figuring out that fiber optics are quite small, and that you need a lot to produce a good amount of light.
