From the Forums: Halo Sword Update, Combining VS1053, Accelerometer and LED Strip and other Adafruit Goodies
Check out Joshua Kane‘s work-in-progress to create a blinky Halo Sword with help from the Adafruit Customer Forums. And he’s taking advantage of a lot of great Adafruit gear, too.
I have started the easy part of the project, roughing out the hardware. I still need to supply power to the Arduino Micro, find a small speaker to attach to the VS1053, as well as program the Arduino, but the installation thus far has gone smoothly. Any suggestions for a speaker and power supply would be greatly appreciated. Here are some photos of the work in progress, let me know what you guys think.
I wanted to use the Arduino Micro controller to create a project that uses light, sound and motion. This project would use the following Adafruit products:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
