11/9 Weekly post for Lights-up Dress

This week I got materials that I ordered from Adafruit last week.

  • ADXL335 – 5V ready triple-axis accelerometer (+-3g analog out)
  • ž13 x Adafruit LED Sequins – Warm White & Ruby Red
  • žShift Registers
  • žHook-up Wire
  • žConductive Thread

Fristly, I reaserched on the internet about what is the accelerometer and shift register and how they works.  And then I tried to work with the 5V ready triple-axis accelerometer(+-3g analog out). So, I used conductive thread to sew accelerometer and lilypad to a piece of the fabric and tried wheather it was working or not throgh programming. However, I did not get the result that I wanted to have and it seems not working which I think maybe it is the connection problem. Therefore, next week I will tried to soldering it rather sewing and see if I got a better concultion.
