A very helpful tutorial on how to use Electroluminescent (EL) wires and LED strip to transformed an ordinary wheelchair into an illuminate wheelchair for road safety.
This project is for those who are wheelchair users and have been itching to find ways to accessorize their wheelchair in a way that will stand out among the crowd. Aside from a decorative standpoint, the EL wire used is not only a way to gain attention, but it also serves as an excellent way to minimize the potential dangers that users may face during the night, as the lights are bright and can be seen from a far away distance.
Using materials such as;
- 2 25 ft EZ-EL Electroluminescent Wire
- 2 10 ft EL Wire Blue
- 2 2-way Splitter Connector
- RGB LED Package and LED Battery Package
- Galvanized Wire
- Masking Tape
- Wire Cutter
