E-Textile Puppets - Glowing eye undead dragon and flashing lights



Zara from Little Bird Electronics has made a glowing eyed dragon with felt and Lilypad lights for the eyes.  

Using a simple parallel circuit to get the best results from the LEDs and a switched Lilypad button cell holder we have made a fantastic puppet with glowing eyes (just in time for the Game of Thrones season 7 finale).

Maddy has a puppet with eyes that turn on as you open and close the mouth.  This has been made by having a break in the circuit in the mouth with conductive thread on the 'teeth' and 'tongue' so that when the mouth closes the eyes light up.
