From the Forums: The Portal Lagoon: Projecting Multiple NeoPixel Rings Shaped by Plywood Gobos #neopixels #arduino
Andy Smith/”slurry bowl” shared some more projection overlap effects from his The Portal Lagoon (T.P.L.) on the Adafruit Forums. (We shared some photos previously as well.) He is using bright NeoPixel rings and what appears to be laser cut or milled plywood patterns as lighting gobos to create complex multi-colored projections that transform as he overlaps and interpenetrates the results of each. We look forward to seeing 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.
