This is for "dance enthusiasts." I still remember that occasion, one of my friends discussed with me about adding some creative element in dance, obviously that was the turning point that made me to design a "LUMIERE SUIT."
The suit was made for our dance team for a college arts fest, and my team won the competition with great support, and it was like a great exposure to the college.
Got lots of appreciation from college faculties and the video gone viral in social media and it was just like a proud moment for me.
So, now let's see how I made and executed my LUMIERE SUIT.
STEP 1: Collecting necessary components
STEP 2: Soldering
I designed three suits, so first I made three circuits to drive the LED strips.
STEP 3: Giving power
It uses mainly two voltage sources:
* one for arduino through a 5V regulator IC
*one for powering LED strips by using two 9V batteries in series through a 12V regulator IC.
The entire connections are integrated on a high density foam board for rigidity.
STEP 4: Collecting hoodies and pants
The major factor before buying a hoodies or pants is that you should buy large size of yours because after installation of LED, while stretching your hand there is a chance of damage to LED.
STEP 5: 12V red LED strip
STEP 6: Stitching LEDs on suit
STEP 7: Checking connections
STEP 8: Interfacing designed circuit board on suit
