Motion Controlled Wearable LED Dance Harness
Continuing on from the last time, we are going to add an accelerometer to detect basic movements and control a 12V non-addressable LED strip for Mark III! Make your LEDs breathe by fading in and out when laying on the floor. Turn off the LEDs when moving to your side. Or make the LEDs blink in a headstand!
To follow along with this tutorial, you will need the following materials listed below to build one motion controller. This is assuming that you have already soldered wires to LED strips and a harness from the first tutorial. You may not need everything, depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guides, and adjust the cart as necessary.
You will need a soldering iron, solder, general soldering accessories, and tools to work with wire.

Wire Strippers - 30AWG (Hakko)TOL-12630
You will also need:
- Electrical Tape
- Hot glue gun
If you do not have a harness or LED strips prepared, make sure you start with this tutorial before continuing. This tutorial builds on the project that was used in the previous tutorial.
