You'll learn how to plan your wearable circuits, sew with electronics, and write programs that run on the FLORA to control the electronics. The FLORA family includes an assortment of sensors, as well as RGB LEDs that let you add lighting to your wearable projects. Make LED brooches, light-up earrings, and color-sensor powered accessories that changes color to match or complement other clothes you're wearing. Your only limit? Just how much you want to shine!
