Here’s how to use 123D Design from Autodesk to create a simple 3D Printed enclosure for projects using the Flora from Adafruit and other components. Using Neo Pixel LED stripes, we’re wanted to illuminate our long board for carving sessions at night. We’re using components from Adafruit: The Flora micro-controller, Neo-pixel LEDs, compact lithium battery and a tactile on/off switch. STL’s forthcoming to thingiverse @ “Pixil3D“!
FLORA – Wearable electronic platform: Arduino-compatible: For the last few years Ladyada has been thinking about everything she wanted in a wearable electronics platform for Adafruit’s community of makers, hackers, crafters, artists, designers and engineers. After months of planning, designing and working with partners around the world for the best materials and accessories, we can share what we’re up to. The hardware is now shipping! We call it the FLORA. Adafruit created the FLORA from scratch after many months of research and we really think we came up with something that will empower some amazing wearable projects. (read more)
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.
