Tagada is luminous knitted necklace I’ve made during the Schmiede residency in september 2016. Cedric Honnet (aka Drix) helped me with the code.

The idea was to integrate lights inside hand knitted balls, in order we don’t feel it when we squeeze it. The challenge was also to test a new way to connect these WS2812 LEDs with a really thin yarn I’ve made. To finish a web interface permit to control light patterns with a phone or any device.

Material used :

  • Wemos D1 mini
  • WS2812 LEDs
  • thin copper thread
  • cotton thread
  • stuffing

You can find more details in this tutorial. Enjoy!
