Final Project Requirements¶
I’ve put together an errand about [光彩-KOSAI-].
What does it do?¶
KOSAI-KOSAI-] is an IoT accessory based on the motif of the Japanese traditional lighting equipment, the “Andon”. In Japan, there are many opportunities to wear a kimono or yukata, which are traditional costumes, on a daily basis. This IoT accessory was produced on the assumption that a woman wearing a kimono or yukata would wear it. On the accessory side, [ATtiny85] and [Neopixel] are built in, and we set the color and brightness of [Neopixel]. The glow of the accessories is controlled by [Obi-Dome], and there is a board with [ESP32] as the main component. The obi clasp controls multiple input devices, and the accessories light up based on the analog data each device receives. We’ve also written a program that allows you to control the color of the [Neopixel] through your smartphone.
Who’s done what beforehand?¶
I based the production of the project on several reference examples. The first example I used as a reference was a [wristband] developed by PIXMOB that was used in a live performance by [Taylor Swift]. The wristband is a receiver that controls an infrared irradiator with DMX, and the wristband understands the signal and can buy colors and emit light. It came with [LED] [infrared receiver LED] [button battery] as a use part. I used this product as a reference to figure out how [KOSAI] works.

We also needed to be cautious about [size] and [weight] in producing the accessories. So we used the example of charliestar, which controls [Neopixel] in [ATtiny9]. I’ve also made my own wearable board to fit this accessory as small as possible in both [size] and [weight].
What did you design?¶
The earring will be ATtiny85 to control the lighting of the Neopixel.
We plan to use 2 x 2 pairs of neopixels for a total of 4.
Two 1.5V button batteries are used to power each accessory.
An infrared receiver (PIC79603) will be installed at the bottom of the accessory to receive the signals from the ESP32.
Inside the obi clasp is a circuit that uses the ESP32 and a 1000mAh rechargeable lithium battery.
The ESP32 also controls an infrared transmitter to read input from the sound sensor, light sensor, accelerometer, and potentiometer and send the information to the side of the earring.
The battery is designed for up to three hours of use.
We have also decided to incorporate a charging circuit to make this a rechargeable device.

What processes were used?¶
- 2D design
- 3D design
- Laser cutting
- 3D printing
- Erectronics design
- Erectronics Production
- Networking & Communications
What questions were answered?¶
- The program description of the LED lighting pattern is very long, but is there a more concise way to describe it?
- Can the sound sensor program express the LED lighting pattern as “flickering flame”?
- How much can I simplify the production process for a workshop kit?
What worked? What didn’t?¶
- Use existing infrared remote control module for debugging
- Infrared communications are working fine.
- Each input device is working fine.
- Output the body of an obi-dome with a 3D printer
- Button battery voltage was low and Neopixel did not work properly.
- Installation of the board stored in the bandage was a little lax.
- Waterproofing of Earrings
- The earring hardware is not biting down hard enough.
How was it evaluated?¶
The clerk at the kimono rental shop I rented when I filmed the video for this final project told me, “If we could, we’d love to use your product as a rental product for the company. This project was made with a concept that made it easy for women to get interested in the [Fab] world, and I believe it was well received by the target audience.
What are the implications?¶
This project is not intended to be a product to be sold in the world, but to be developed as a “workshop kit” that will be used to teach programming and digital fabrication to women. In Japan, there are still very few people who know about digital fabrication. I think that’s because our activities are not well known to the female demographic. In order to promote [digital fabrication] activities in Japan, I think that if I hold the final project I created as an introductory course for [digital fabrication], more people will join our activities.
