The Chameleon Scarf is an adaptable piece of clothing that uses a color sensor to change its appearance depending on what its owner is wearing at any given time.
Available from Adafruit – a platform encouraging fun and straightforward DIY electronics projects – it only requires a few simple components such as a 12 color-changing LED and a color sensor. Most of the projects on the site are built off of Adafruit’s wearable electronics platform called FLORA.
Designed it from the ground up to deliver a seamless experience to the hackers, crafters, artists, designers and engineers on the site, it has built-in USB support and doesn’t require any special cables or extra parts for programming. FLORA is ideal for beginners as well, being difficult to destroy by connecting a battery backwards or connecting a battery that would normally damage the system’s circuits.
