Description We will show you how to make your own geeky bag with a cat, ghost or self designed motive and blinky LED-eyes (even programmable if you like).

No experience with sewing or electronics necessary – just bring some curiosity and a bit of time.

We provide a quick and easy-to-make version but also a sophisticated version that is programmable if you like. Just drop by and have fun!

Self-organized session notes Make your own geeky bag with blinking LEDs and sensors!

We will show you how to make your own geeky bag with a cat, ghost or self designed motive and blinky LED-eyes (even programmable if you like). No experience with sewing or electronics necessary – just bring some curiosity and a bit of time. You can buy all the material that is needed directly on place.

Electronic GeekBag

- a workshop assembly for electronic sewing -


What?

We like to get you interested in sewable electronics. Therefore we put together a project we call "GeekBag" to give you a project to try this out for yourself.

We have kits (a limited amount), support, all the tools you need.

So just drop by and hang out, discuss whatever sewable related stuff and if you like, build yourself a bag.


Bag?

The "easy" kit is ~15€ and contains:

  • the bag
  • a motive
  • a coin-cell holder
  • 2 LEDs


The "smart" one is ~30€ and contains:

  • the bag
  • a motive
  • a Microcontroller-Board (Adafrutit-Gemma)
  • a brightness sensor
  • a LiPo-Battery
  • either 2 normal LEDs or 2 NeoPixels


a LiPo charger is sold separately for 10€ if you need one


The "smart" bag can be programmed by Arduino and we have example code that:

  • turns off the eyes when the sensor gets bright
  • occasionally blinks, winks and some 'hypno'-animation

Were?

We can be found in the mixed-assembly area, ground floor. (you can also use c3nav to find us)
