Hermes: Interactive LED Shoes!

Hermes: Interactive LED Shoes!
« on: September 16, 2013, 10:05:50 AM »
A couple of friends and myself developed some shoes that light up when you walk!

Our original design included:
1x Adafruit Arduino FLORA
1x LSM303 FLORA Accelloremter
1x LPD8806 LED Strip (22xLEDs)
1x LiPo Battery 3.7v 1200mAh

Most of it encased in PlastiDip to prevent solder joints braking and hardware damage.

Here is a video we posted of how they turn out!

We are looking forward to replacing the Arduino FLORA with the TinyLily and will keep you updated on our progress!

This is great but you should share code to get it to work with the TinyLily! :)

I think you are really great, as well as your idea and design. I know there are not too many options of adult light up shoes, though there are a lot of choices for kids. Today when we are talking about the light up shoes, we are opt to those LED rechargeable products so they can be charged and keep lighting up.
