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.
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.
