I often thought that I needed a separate light just for a closet. There were some situations when I did not want to turn on my room light to grab something out of closet.. especially not to wake up my roommate and pets. So I thought about creating a moveable light on a hanger.

I planned to make the circuit directly onto one of my shirts, however, it did not quite work out because the shirt was too stretchy. Instead, I used pillow case fabric to make a mini shirt that can be hung on a hanger.

I created a circuit using Flora, LED lights, and a button that controls turning on/off the lights. When Flora is connected to a battery, a button is activated to control the lights.

 Materials used:

  • Pillow cover
  • LED lights * yellow
  • Flora (arduino)
  • A button
  • Conductive thread
  • Conductive fabric
  • Copper thread

Future iteration:

  • make more than one state for lights. (ex: blinking, lights partially on, etc)
  • make both side of the shirt work (add more lights on the other side of the shirt)
