Multimedia: Make your own LED face mask

29 July 2020 Multimedia, Videos

Face masks have become a huge market in the COVID-19 era, and I’m sure we’ve all seen some pretty creative and funky designs over the last few months. But if you want one with real bling, a light-up face mask that responds to the sound of the wearer’s voice has been developed by a games developer in California.

The BBC’s Chris Fox spoke to designer Tyler Glaiel and had a go at making the mask himself (see www.dataweek.co.za/*jul20-facemask1). If you want to make one yourself, Tyler Glaiel has released a highly detailed DIY guide (www.dataweek.co.za/*jul20-facemask2) for doing so using an LED matrix and powered by an Arduino Nano board.
