DIY: Heated Earmuffs with LEDs

There is no better way to learn electronics and more about wearables than designing and building your own. SparkFun has shared a project that shows you what it takes to make your own heated earmuffs with LED lights to keep you warm and visible on cold winter nights.

You are going to need 5cm x 10cm heating pads and 80 WS2812 LEDs to complete these projects. The earmuffs connect to the power source with two flexible and soft silicone wires.
