* Little Details *

 Idea:
To create a wearable body circuit that promotes interaction by examining details. As the switches are found and turned on, LEDs light up.   

Materials:
10.5 M of 22GA Brass wire
3 volt battery and battery pack holder
Plastic Beads
5 Lilly Pad LEDs  (blue, yellow, green, white)
Silk Yarn

Process:

Final Piece:

Challenges:
 – Had a red and yellow light in the circuit made the cool colours dull.

–  Creating a second switch incorporated into the design.

–   Making sure connection was solid without soldering.
– Creating a flaw in the design small enough that people would still interact with.
 

Successes:

–          Creating the extra switch at the bottom of the piece.

–          Removed the red LED to increase brightness of other colours.

–          Created interest to second switch.

Future Improvements:

Solder LEDs Together.

Make a full body piece with many switches.

Fully resolve covering the battery pack.
