LED suit

By silviodc, 21 January 2019

Since I am living in Cologne, one of the centers of carneval I want to build my own costume.
Since I am a nerd, it has to include sensors and LEDs.

There are 3 independent circuits, which can show different animations or colors.
The control works in phase 1 with a flexsensor in my glove and some switches at the central control box(7)

Here is the first test with the Flexsensor:

Here you can already see the jacket of the suit:

Later I want to document the building process a bit better on this side.

Parts I used:

Ravpower powersupply with 26.8 Ah

Arduino Nano


~200 individually adressable RGB LEDs
