Tweet My Wedding Dress
Talk by jo franchetti
Sunday from 3:00 PM - 3:20 PM in Stage C
After attending the last EMF camp, I fell in love with the tweetable LED inflatable bunny. I wondered if it would be possible to take the idea of LEDs controlled by twitter and put them all over something wearable, in this case my wedding dress. My talk will go over the tech I used (suitable for absolute beginners), the mistakes that I made and the lessons I learnt along the way. From learning to use the twitter API, writing my own API, coding for an arduino and wiring the whole thing up to the worst bit, THE SEWING. I aim to spread the message that it is ok to f**k up, that everyone does it and that if you keep trying and keep asking for help, you can make silly things too.
