Over the past week Lucas and I have been working with alligator clips, conducted thread and LED lights. but he reason why is that Lucas and I have to get LED lights on with alligator clips and lily tiny, I think that’s what you call it, but i’m guessing a broad variety of people who don’t work in the maker space are probably thinking what is a lily tiny. well a lily tiny is a circuit that the battery runs trough then into a LED light, but the cool thing is the lily tiny has different ways of turning the LED on. and i took some videos and photos.
so really I learnt what a lily tiny is and how to use through a battery and LED.
and as you saw you can get it to work but the LED flashes in different patterns. Lucas ans I are going to use that on our jeans but with conducted thread instead of alligator clips.
the important ideas are the ones that you think are realistic enough to work so you try them and it helps so when your done, it tells you what not to do and to do.
if you were to be sewing with conducted thread and you let both sides of it touch it will cause a short circuit. a short circuit prevents you from making the LED lights turn on. because the negative and appositive can’t mix, the have to stay on their side of the LED light without touching the opposite thread.
well Lucas and I still have to sow the conducted thread and place the battery and lily tiny on the pants, but Lucas and I need to remember to sow the conducted thread through the LED really tight, so it dose not come loos and so the conducted thread can turn the light to its full.
I think that if Lucas and I want to do better we cant sow long, big stretches, we need sow not to small but big enough that it wont take us to sow for ages.
well Lucas and I did have a problem with getting the lily tiny to work but I wouldn’t say i solved the problem, because some others helped us, at least we understood at the end.
Lucas and I do seem to get a lot done together but have fun as well, so to be honest i wouldn’t say we work bad with each other. the only time that we don’t get a lot done is when we don’t have the materials we need.
my plan is detailed enough to have it in my brain, but at the moment we don’t know but when we finish we will know for shore.
next I will start to sow and place the battery with the lily tint to the jeans so that we can sow.
and here are some other pictures and videos.
