Trinket Vader chest box:

So i just created my first project using the trinket 3v version.

I bought it for this project specifically and i completed it in two days. I’m a member of the 501st Legion (a worldwide star wars costuming organization) and we make screen accurate costumes. One of the challenges we have is getting the props to look right, specially lights and sounds. This is where I found lots of potential for the trinket, it has enough memory for simple programs that do not require more than 5 io’s etc.

So when I saw what the trinket could do I just went and bought two. This is the first one and I will start working on the next: Automatic helmet ventilation.

…Thanks for watching. And thanks to Adafruit for this awesome device, It’s going to be in most if not all of my props from now on. I just can’t believe how fast i got it to work and specially that i can make it do more things than my original scope of the project.

I have been looking for something like this for a while. I now have other things in mind to make with these little critters. I now understand all about breakout boards so I will try other stuff out….

Adafruit Trinket – Mini Microcontroller – 3.3V Logic: Trinket may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! It’s a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATtiny85, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don’t want to give up your expensive dev-board and you aren’t willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It’s our lowest-cost arduino-IDE programmable board!
