I stumbled across this forum via the instructables and saw the amazing suit by Honus (Truly amazing). I am currently in the finishing stages of my Mark 46 suit but unfortunately my Achilles heal is the electronics. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in guiding me through the process. I have purchased an Ardriuno uno and 4 servos and would like to start with the sketch for back and chest.
Any assistance/guidance that anyone could provide I would be extremely grateful. Bear in mind I have very little programming experience and this sounds really embarrassing but I can barley figure out ohms law.
Thanks, I have been playing around with it and have gotten a servo to move using the standard servo template in examples in the interface and unfortunately that's about it. I cant seem to find one that would work with a push hold button switch.
I am really new at programming and electronics. I've watched a couple of tutorials on the Stan Winston School of arts but that is about it.
I've also started testing out the unibeam using the pro-mini and some neopixel rings as well using the sketch below. However, I cant seem to get it to do the standard start up that you would see in the unibeam lighting going from one LED at a time in a circular direction and then slowly getting brighter.
//Superhero Power Plant
//fades all pixels subtly
//code by Tony Sherwood for Adafruit Industries
#define PIN 6
// Parameter 1 = number of pixels in strip
// Parameter 2 = pin number (most are valid)
// Parameter 3 = pixel type flags, add together as needed:

I too am a bit new to Arduino and Neopixel LED rings but I was able to load your sketch from above into a Neopixel wrist display using 8 of the Neo-LEDs. I noticed that is does not do what you described in the details. The LEDs do not scan one at a time around its perimeter as you wish. I am not sure how the sketch needs to be improved to do this, but I will give it a shot when I get the time.
Below is a video of how the code reacts.
P.S. Here are a few links to some youtube videos of props and blinky stuff I have done for myself and clients:
