My thread is more resistant than I anticipated, so only 5 lights lit up on the chain when I began testing it. I have had to rethink the chaining, and I need to re-sew a lot of it. Honestly, I’m really worried at this point. I am flying home Wednesday for Thanksgiving, and in the current state of panic that the US is experiencing due to terrorism, there’s no way I’m going to try to risk bringing a computerized wired skirt on an airplane. I get back late Sunday night, so I can try to work on the code at home but I can’t sew (which is the most time-intensive part).
At this point I am pretty much finished with my other class and I can do my research hours project at home over the break. The class I teach is wrapping up, I can focus about 75% of my time to this project. I’m just worried that it may mess up again.
I am going to try to get at least one row of lights working with the accelerometer or the bluetooth color changer. I can sew the rest of them on after the semester ends so I can still have my awesome light-up skirt the way I want it. For this class, I just want it to prove the concept so I can keep working and not go insane.
