This light painting machine lets you light paint from a remote location! All you need is an internet connection. From
This “thing” is a machine that allows anyone, anywhere to light paint. It works like this (see image below for reference):
You submit an image file (jpg, png, etc.) to our Interactive webpage
Our website takes your submitted photo and saves it
Your photo then travels through the Interwebs to our local light painting machine
The brains of our light painting machine, a microcontroller called the Parallax Propeller (similar to Arduino), receives information about the photo
The Propeller then choreographs motor movement, DSLR camera triggering, and LED pattern timing
A light-painted photo of your submitted image is then uploaded to our website, and delivered back to you for you to enjoy
We wanted to give the awesomeness of light painting to everyone (*who has some Internet
We hoped that having the ability to automate light painting would allow us to push light painting to places it hasn’t been
We thought that our last project, the LED Paint Brush, was really fun so we wanted to see what other ways we could use light painting
Because it’s flippin’ sweet Read more.
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.
