Usually, when we see flashing items these days, it uses addressable LED strips with WS2812B or similar alternatives. However, old-fashioned round LEDs are still on the market and can still be used well.These DIY LED shoes come from [TechnoChic] Yes A good example.
This pair of shoes uses a large 10mm LED with built-in color-changing intelligence. Just power them up and they will fade between a series of colors. They run from a button battery sewn on the side of each pair of shoes, with LEDs stuck on the back of the soles. Then use a conductive product called Maker Tape to create circuits for LEDs and button batteries, as well as pressure switches inside each shoe. When the wearer puts the weight on the heel, the switch turns on and lights up the LED every time the wearer takes a step.
This is not the first time we have seen a pair of shoes full of LED lights, but it can be said to be the simplest concept version to add luster to these pages. This is a quick way to create interactive blinking LED widgets and a great way for beginners to make their projects.
