Flora Brake Light Backpack #WearableWednesday

February 14, 2013 Becky Stern

Say hello to my new favorite bag! Improve your visibility on your motorcycle by installing an LED pixel display inside your backpack! This weather-resistant project uses a Flora and accelerometer to auto-detect braking and uses a simple wireless module to trigger turn signal animations. Check out the complete tutorial on the Adafruit Learning System, download the code from Github, and watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe) or Vimeo.
