Gemma / Trinket Space Invader Jewelry #WearableWednesday

pendant-anim

We’re on a Gemma and Trinket bender. They’re just so tiny and affordable, it’s hard not to come up with fun project ideas!

This animated totem video game creature pendant needs just a few wires, making it a gentle introduction to soldering. Pick an LED matrix — green for Space Invaders, yellow for Pac Man and so forth — create your own custom animation (we have an example to get your started) and upload the code to the chip.

Wear the completed charm as jewelry and flaunt your geek pride. Or Halloween’s coming up…maybe your costume could use some classic video game-inspired bling!
