Running Headband

Protecting myself when running at night by making myself more visible

Running Headband

Posted on November 16, 2015

The winters in the North West are pretty dark and difficult for finding time to run when in the daylight. While I have a headlamp for when I need to see the blacktop in front of me, I decided I wanted a fun headband just to make myself visible on grey days. Days when it’s not that it’s pitch black outside, but just that it’s so cloudy and overcast outside that I might be hard to see.

I used an AdaFruit Gemma micro controller sewed together with a parallel series of NeoPixels. I then gave it some code to make it rainbow through all the NeoPixel colors. Makes me so very easy to see! And stylish. 🙂
