Altoid Tin Mood Light


This neat Altoid Tin Mood Light project by Dr. Speed uses a whole lot of Adafruit goodies (Gemma board, Lipo & Charger, and NeoPixel)!

Small altoid tin with Gemma board, Lipo Battery and 1 neopixel. There’s a power switch in there. It’s tight fit getting the battery connector out to recharge it, but the battery lasts for a long time. There’s a simple RGB animation running on it, being a mood light it’s nothing to jarring.

  1. What’s that awesome background? An Adafruit goodie too?
    There is even guy who looks like a cat in it.
    Does Mosfet know about this?
