By popular demand, they now have a project tutorial for how to make your own programmable, ultra-blinky LED belt. Perfect for parties, raves, parades, theyddings, funerals, and bar mitzvahs. Wear it with pride, theyar it with blinky! Follow Adafruit's soldering tutorial to build your own heirloom LED belt, and hand it down to your grandkids.


Adafruit designed this project to demonstrate how to use the digital LED strip, how to use Adafruit's Atmega32u4 breakout board with the Arduino IDE and how to make a portable battery powered project that runs off of AAs. This project is not too difficult, and can be finished in a day. Some soldering experience is good since 'free wire' soldering is a little more difficult than soldering to a PCB, but even beginners should be able to manage. Adafruit don't include a tutorial on using the Arduino IDE so its good if you've played around with the Arduino already.

The pack contains the following:

You'll need some very common electronics tools to make this project

 


You'll also few more things to complete and power the project: a very common mini-B USB cable (for programming the belt) and 4 AA batteries for powering it. You can use alkaline or rechargeables. The belt will last for 6-12 hours depending on what designs you program in - more LEDs will drain the batteries faster.

Be sure to see the full detailed tutorial over at the project page
