My friend Dan (of the Science Brothers) has an impressive element collection. I teamed up with him to build an equally impressive display for his large collection; complete with 120 PWM channels of LED backlight and an Arduino at the controls. It even uses code from the Adafruit Tiny Arduino Music Visualizer. Check out the results:
P.S. It has been a while since I posted. Never fear, my wedding is one month out and afterwards I should once again know what it is like to have time to do other things. I’ll be back!
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.
