How to Make a Pin That Judges Your Fashion #WearableWednesday https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/04/20/how-to-make-a-pin-that-judges-your-fashion-wearablewednesday/
It’s really hard to trust a best friend to tell you how you really look in that purple cardigan. So, why leave it to chance? Wear a pin that lights up based on feedback of your fashion choices! Paul Langdon and his daughter started on this project last year at a Hackster.io weekend that has blossomed into what they are now calling Green Light: Fashion
. Basically a QR code on the front of the pin enables friends or passers-by to vote on your ensemble with the results illuminated for everyone to view, with green lights indicating fashionista and red lights signifying victim. It’s a fun wearable with a kick of IoT and 3D printing.
The base of the pin is 3D printed with an Arduino MKR1000 hiding on the back. The front holds an Adafruit OLED display circled by an Adafruit NeoPixel ring, while Azure Hub helps with the IoT magic. Yes, all those wires do manage to stay hidden and it’s a lot of fun to wear to work or school. Feel like making one yourself?
