Don't you want to have such a nice and cool earring when you go out at night or for parties? I would like to have it, that's why I made Arduino Lilypad Controlled Neopixel Earrings. :) These earrings don't just light up. They have several different animations and colors.
We will start the project by loading code into Lilypad first. In order to program the card, we need a Female/Female Jumper Cable and a USB Serial Converter. After installing the code, we will not have any work with USB Serial.
Make the connection between Lilypad and the USB Serial Converter, as in the picture.
Then, connect the Lilypad with your computer using Micro USB.
Step 3: Programming the Arduino
Open the Arduino software. Under Tools-Boards, select the Lilypad main board. You need to make sure that the correct board is selected.
Select your port number. It might be a different port for you.
Upload the code to Lilypad main board.
You can copy the Neopixel code from Adafruit’s Github page. Here is the link:NeopixelEarring
Create a new project in the Arduino IDE. Copy the whole code and paste the code you copied here. Then click the "Upload" button and upload the code to Lilypad.
**If you don't work with Adafruit libraries before, you might need to add up the Adafruit libraries.
The code loading process is over, no more work with USB Serial Converter.
