As young children our parents never bought us light up shoes, but this was our opportunity to fulfill a childhood desire. Now we can tap our phone in our pocket to illuminate the lights.
How it works
Tap the phone in your pocket and Pretty Lights lights up, changing colors when tapped.
Challenges I ran into
Difficult to detect taps with only the gyroscope
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We produced a working proof of concept
What I learned
Things about Bluetooth, gyroscopes, and the microphone on the iPhone
What's next for Pretty Lights
While now Pretty Lights may only change the color of a light, the possibilities are endless for the future.
