Solar-Powered Glow-in-the-Dark Bag

This project demonstrates how to make a solar-powered glow-in-the-dark bag. As soon as night falls, the bag will automatically switch on, giving your bag extra “shine.” The project introduces interactivity using advanced circuits. The project also introduces the use of solar power energy, which might come in handy as an alternative power source for future wearable projects. We will also look at how to make a battery charger as well as how to make your first sensor. This is the last chapter without the Arduino board. This chapter also acts as an example of why it is useful to use Arduino boards.

Note There are a lot of steps to this project, and since all the electronic components are fitted ...
