Over the past couple of weeks, Adafruit staffers Tony Sherwood and I carved out some of our free time to put together a “A Red Bull Creation 2013 Qualifier Entry” working from the fun LED strips and “turbull encabulator” shield the Red Bull Creation team had sent us to play around with.
Our goal from early on was to create something cute and actually engaging to play with that we could eventually give back to the Adafruit community. We seized on the idea of an RGB color picker, the “Koloric Konfabulator” and then featured “Ladyada’s E is for Electronics” — Adafruit awesome Creative Commons coloring book — as the material for participants to color. Check out our video showing how it works!
