Color ball – babies love LEDs

Here’s two tiny engineers-in-training (nice Ada Lovelace onesie!) playing with a color ball containing an Arduino, our RGB LED tape, and some other fun stuff. Full specs in the YouTube descriptionvia Facebook


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Thanks for the link 🙂

    It’s really simple, but the source code is here if anyone wants it (public domained):

    It’s just mapping a clamped X accelerometer value to hue, then buffering to prevent it from being too squirrely.

    Also fixed the encoding: http://youtu.be/v5wv_bU2MCM
