…Now, I just need perhaps some NeoPixels and a GEMMA or something, to make the rose petals appear to glow solidly, then dim to off one by one at separate time intervals to represent the enchantment dying away throughout the show. I figure I could probably sew the NeoPixels into some of the synthetic petals and mount some into the foam base of the bell jar for more luminescence. Then using some micro controller to pre-program the dimming sequence so some kid theater-tech can sit literally behind the scenes and push a single button for the dimming to occur.
…I used the “Space Face LED Galaxy Makeup” as a template for hardware and code, only modifying the RGB values to (255,0,50) for something a little more “rose color”….
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.
