Flora Sound Reactive Hat
I just put the finishing touches on a sound reactive hat that uses a Flora, a tiny microphone, and surface mountable RGB LEDs. This project is an adaptation of Lina Wassong's Sound Reactive Equalizer Skirt, shared on Instructables under a Creative Commons (CC BY NC SA) license. This is a perfect party hat.
Lessons Learned:1. I love Adafruit silicone stranded-core wire!
2. Soldering RBG LEDs is tedious.
3. A glue gun is a great tool for strengthening solder joints and diffusing light.
4. Hand held rivet pliers may be harder to work with than standard spot setters.
