Glowing Star Chuck Taylor Mod Complements Your Converse

by Lambert Varias

The simple design of Converse Chuck Taylors make them timeless. It also makes them a tad plain and boring. Adafruit’s mod will make your Chuck Taylors stand out by making the logo on the shoes light up. It’s not as amazing as having self-lacing shoes, but it’s also way more affordable than Nike’s loot.

The mod makes use of Adafruit’s electroluminescent panel as well as its small inverters. Becky Stern of Adafruit shows a couple of ideas for the mod – a star-shaped panel and a round one. But the black star in the round design is just a vinyl cutout, so you’re free to make your own design. Like a Swoosh or something. Actually don’t do that.

Skate to Adafruit for the full instructions and parts list.
