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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
