Final Project: How to make a Smart Helemet


I decided to change my Final project in Week 6 because I was very inspired by the movie,
'How to train your Dragon 3" and I really liked the sketch I drew from that.

Using Fusion360, I rendered a couple design.

Making the Helmet.

    The layers that make up the Helmet part
  1. Composite: Resin Burlap (Week 18)
  2. Leather Sewn On
  3. Neopixels (Week12)
  4. Casted Spikes (Week 10)
  5. Leather belt
You can check out Step by Step of what I did in [Week 20].



Molding and Casting


Bill of Material
  • Atmega 328P
  • 0.1uf Capacitor
  • 1uf Capacitor
  • 10uf Capacitor
  • 10K Resistor
  • 499 Resistor
  • 8.00 Resonator
  • LED Orange
  • FTDI Connector
  • ISP Connector
  • Reset button
  • Switch
  • LIS3DH Acclerometer breakboard
  • 3.7V LI-ion Battery x2


From my struggles I found a simple public accelelrometer example with neopixels by Tony Dicola.
I adapted his code and customized it with my project, adding on prequisites.
I hope to develope it more to work with photoresistor and have better input reading.
