LED Knuckle Glove using miniaturized Arduino LilyPad [Ozzy Osbourne Knuckle Tattoo Wanna Be]

Here my first go at an Arduino textile project.  It turned out to be pretty easy.

And I’d like to think that think Ozzy Osbourne would like it…

What You Need:

Click Here to Download this List and the Schematic

Circuit Setup:

I know – not very technical!  But hey – it’s the best way I felt I could communicate the layout.

LED Knuckle Glove_OP

All the lines in diagram indicate the conductive thread connections.  The two white circles on the thumb and pointer finger, are where you create “pads” by making multiple passes of the conductive thread.   The ovals on the knuckles are the LED circuit boards.

Code:

/*
LED Knuckle Glove (Ozzy Ozbourne wanna be) 
 
 Circuit: 
 
 TinyLily as processor - conductive thread as connective wire
 Pin 0 > TinyCiruits LED circiut board at PINKY finger > GND
 Pin 1 > TinyCiruits LED circiut board at INDEX finger > GND  
 Pin 2 > TinyCiruits LED circiut board at MIDDLE finger > GND
 Pin 3 > TinyCiruits LED circiut board at POINTER finger > GND
 
 Pin A5 > conductive thread up the side and a "pad" stichted to the left side
 of the pointer finger knuckle
 
 GND > conductive thread up the side  of the THUMB and a "pad" stichted on the thumb.
 also connected to all finger LEDs as indicated above and Also 
 
 MODEs
 Mode 0 = LEDs back and forth in sequence
 Mode 1 = all LEDs blink
 Mode 2 = LEDs on Solid

  1. […] Our friends over at the Open Source Hardware Group put together this great project of a making an LED knuckle glove using the TinyLily. They also have a number of tutorials on using the Arduino platform that is definitely worth checking out, learn more about it here. […]
