In the Forums: Fluffy little clouds (trinket + neopixels) #neopixel
These “Fluffy Little Clouds” costumes (and accompanying cloud/umbrella objects!) just might be the most darling blinky costume to date. What do you think? Shared by Selina and Zeke Koch in the Adafruit Forums:
They had matching cloud costumes (a trinket, some neopixels/ws2811’s, a super simple rf radio and a USB battery). My wife had an umbrella with neopixels playing raindrop animations. I couldn’t use the trinket since I used 112 lights.
The code for the umbrella uses AdaFruit’s NeoPixel library and is posted here.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
