Working on an LED centurion helmet (My name is Roman, I’m a creative developer, it had to happen sooner or later…). Its an ex film prop. I removed the horsehair plume and laser cut and bolted down a replacement. Front and back is just under 7m worth of NeoPixel strips.
Wrote the software with Cinder, calculates the Bark coefficients of a live audio source and passes commands onto an Arduino Due. The rest is down to the NeoPixel library 🙂
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.
