Music Dress Beats with Your Heart #WearableWednesday

Ayliffe Brown is taking her love of computers and fashion to the club with her music dress.  It uses a Lilypad Arduino and red LED sequins to create the illuminated music note. A heart rate monitor clipped to Ayliffe’s ear takes info to the Arduino, allowing the music note to beat along with her heart. It’s a fun look and you can get it too! Just look at our Heart Rate Badge tutorial. You can use our FLORA microcontroller and some NeoPixels to create a heart or other designs that move in different colors. A Polar Heart Rate monitor worn around the rib cage allows the heartbeat action. So, make your next dress more memorable with a light show of your inner feelings. It’s all part of the maker love.
