Tyler Glaiel is a programmer who recently launched an innovative mask that helps people showcase their emotions while wearing a mask. The concept, a new voice-activated LED mask, uses lights to mimic the natural movement of the mouth when speaking.
Glaiel launched detailed instructions with photos and step-by-step guidance to show other creators how to make their own LED mask at home. Users will need a flexible 8x8 LED matrix, an Arduino Nano microcontroller, an Electret Microphone, a 9V battery connector, a 9V to 5V converter, a 330Ω resistor, electrical tape, wires, and fabric. In addition, users show have a soldering kit, wire cutters, screwdrivers, pliers, and scissors to create their own masks.
