Build a wearable Thermometer Scarf with Arduino
Here at PMD Way we love wearable electronics, and the following project by Instructables member caitlansdad is a fantastic example of what can be done without much effort.
Their thermometer scarf is unique, useful and certainly a talking point - wherever you go, the current temperature is displayed in an analogue fashion thanks to the embedded W2812B LEDs in the scarf:
As you can see below, the scarf has the temperature scale sewn along the vertical, which will correspond with the strip of LEDs. Control is easy thanks to using the Arduino-compatible wearable electronics board, along with a temperature sensor and rechargeable battery:
This project easily lends itself to other larger-than-life thermometer projects - so to get started, visit the project tutorial page. If you're interested in doing this yourself, PMD Way has you covered with:
- Wearable electronics controller boards
- Rechargeable batteries
- WS2812B LEDs in ring, module and strip forms
- Temperature sensors
- and much more!
