Raspberry Pi Halloween costume – Adafruit Trinket and Neopixel Ring (echo boo)
Sadly my Halloween costume this year doesn’t use a Raspberry Pi but it is inspired by it with red and green colors and the RPI logo stenciled (with a Pibow case). It uses the Adafruit Neopixel Ring (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1463) and Trinket (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1501) with a usb cable down the back of my shirt to a basic portable phone charger. There are a few extra wires for effect as it only uses ground, 5v and pin 0 for data in.
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.
