Story[edit | edit source]
The goal of this project is to create a mood sensing hat. I'm working on the functionality of the hat and my partner is working on the look of the hat. we successfully modified the arudino cross-fading software to make the color changing diode transition colors faster and have unlimited looping.we did this by copying the cross-fading programing code then going in to the code itself and adjusting the settings. I simply went and changed the numbers on the "wait" to 1 and the "loop count" to zero. The "wait" is the the speed of the color transition and the" loop count" is the amount of cycles the program does. The lower the "wait" is the faster the color transition the higher it is slower. Before you program your arduino make sure you go to tools then board and make sure it's set on the right aurduino model that your using or your programing won't go through we were looking for a good position to attach the sensor in considering the length of the cable so what i did is i attached it into my neck using tape, because it wouldn't attach by the clipper because it small and not strong

Tutorials[edit | edit source]
All projects create new tutorials of technical details future participants are going to want to know. They are going to be separate pages that are linked to here.
Next Steps[edit | edit source]
simulate heart pulses to react to my color changing diode, and the hat design should be finalized
