LilyPad Safety Scarf
Design and build time: 1 Day
In this project, we’ll create a wearable safety scarf. The safety scarf is embedded with LilyPad Hardware and a ribbon of LEDs. It is designed for pedestrians to increase visibility when walking the streets at night. The LED ribbon is triggered when light is low, making the wearer more visible to vehicles, bikers, and other pedestrians.
