Proximity Dress

hardware
I worked with Valkyrie Savage to design, build, and program Arduino-based electronics for her wedding dress. Using two XBee modules, an Arduino Fio, and an Arduino Lilypad with the XBee breakout board, we constructed a proximity sensor based on RSSI pin signal strength between the two modules. This sensor was used to illuminate a series of LEDs on her dress, providing a visual indication of our mutual proximity.
