2. Wear it
Want to add some flash to your wardrobe? Put a Bit on it! To re-create this blinking jacket sleeve, place a pulse Bit before a light wire in your circuit. We used 3 pulse Bits and 3 light wire Bits. Each pulse was set to a different speed to create the alternating blinking pattern.
You can also weave the light wire through garments and accessories to get a glowing effect. We gave our designer, Emily, some extra snazzy shoes by threading the light wire through her laces. We also attached pressure sensors to the light wire to trigger it when she’s walking. For more inspiration, checkout this amazing Tron themed video.
Slide the light wire through some straws or styrofaom balls to create a stunning necklace that glows in the dark!
To secure the wire to wood (we used balsa), try using a more substantial office stapler to position your light wire exactly right.
