Biohacking? By the boat load.
Engineering? Not so much since the website's inception, until now.
Like many, I thoroughly enjoyed Tron Legacy and eagerly await TR3N, if a trilogy is in its franchise future. Back in the land of "the users", we are not befriended by self-manifesting Olivia Wilde's, or enrobed in suits of light. The latter, now possible thanks to the folks at Adafruit, I was able to upgrade a simple jacket into a Kevin Flynn flashback inspired piece.
The jacket had a waist band adjuster, which made a perfect chase for wires from one side to the other, allowing me to have an EL strip on each side of the jacket and a 2xAA inverter in one of the pockets.
It was my first time using a stitch puller. I needed to open up the chase to add grommets to both ends of the chase and solder the connectors, which were too large to fit through the grommets.
I had to perforate the clear periphery of the EL tape every eighth inch or so to affix it to the jacket with transparent thread. The result...worthy of the users.
I still need to repair the places the stitch puller did its work, but it will be several months before it is warm enough to wear this light of a jacket in these parts of the grid.
Stay well engineered,
End of Line.
