Throughout the "Portable Party" project, while my two partners worked on the overall box that would hold food, drinks, party favors, etc., I focused on designing and creating the party favors. By the end of the project, I had completed two favors: glowing badges, and glowing necklaces/bracelets. After spending several days unsuccessfully attempting to 3d-print a correctly-sized container for the glowing necklaces/bracelets, I was finally able to print one that two batteries, two LEDs, and the LED strip could easily fit in. After fully attached, the batteries, which were attached to the LEDs, would light the LEDs, and the light from the LEDs would travel through each end of the LED strip, making the entire strip glow as it is being worn.
While the necklace/bracelet ended up working perfectly, the badges still needed to be worked on even after we presented them. I had printed three different shapes of badges: an octopus (the logo for the "DJ Station" group), a triangle (the logo for the "Yo Dawg I Herd You Like Trianglez" group), and a table (the logo for our "Snack-Tastic Box" group). I had successfully designed and printed each of these shapes, but I did not have enough time to add on a part that enabled a person to attach the badge to their clothing. Other than that missing piece, the badge also worked as intended; the LED that was attached to the light with a wire was able to shine onto the badge, making it glow.
