Maybe you’ve seen a Daft Punk build before, but just because it has been done, doesn’t mean there isn’t a joy in doing it anyway. Besides, it looks like Sunil John is doing a great job with part one of his creation. He admits to doing his fair share of lurking on the RPF site, and it looks like the info gathering is going well. Armed with a 3D printer, Sunil has produced some nice plastic pieces for his subvisor. Check out the huge number of red LED’s, too. The visor is already at the point of reacting to sound, so we can’t wait to see the second installment of his log.
In the meantime, you can start gathering what you need to make your own LED matrices. You might also want to check out our LED Ampli-Tie tutorial, so you can learn how to program lights that react to sound.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
