Scarf Changes Color To Match Every Outfit

Scarf Changes Color To Match Every Outfit

DIY electronics allow you to make your own adaptable accessories.

Ross Brooks

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.
