Overview

LED Hula Hoops are common and fairly straight forward to put together. A fresher take on this idea is to add an accelerometer and micro-controller to the setup. The micro-controller communicates with the accelerometer, gets the motion information and toggles the LEDs to produce interesting patterns.

TODO

  • Procure Parts - Electronic (Accelerometer, Microcontroller, LED, FETS, Resistors and batteries), Mechanical (Hula Hoop)
  • Micro-Controller & Accelerometer Communication
  • LED Circuit Control
  • Hula Hoop Construction
  • Hula Hoop Wiring
  • Testing and Debugging
