Fashion tech designer and maker extraordinaire Anouk Wipprecht has created a DIY high-tech edelweiss that you can make at home. As a part of her work at the Fablab Swarovski, the Dutch designer has come up with a simple pendant in the shape of the mountain flower. The design contains six LEDs that blink in three different patterns.
Compared to her couture creations like Spider Dress and Smoke Dress, the edelweiss is simple, meant to introduce young creatives to 3D printing and coding. The project, with step-by-step instructions, has been shared on Instructables, a website for sharing DIY creations. Wipprecht has contributed to the open source community since the early days of her work in 2005.
