Dr. Lucy Rogers took her broken wrist cast and turned it into a cheerful thing. She dazzled her cast with some electronics from Adafruit, including the Flora, Bluefruit, and Neopixels. Bluefruit is a Bluetooth module that connects to her phone. The phone is listening to the latest CheerLights color and sends it her cast using Bluetooth.
