STEP 1 : Design a Hat with a Job
After experimenting with littleBits so see how the different Bits affected each other, we developed a prototype of what we wanted our hat to do with littleBits (light up for evening runs). We experimented with a button and a light sensor. The light sensor won out because no one wants to run while holding a button!
