This past weekend was the New York Comic Con 2014. For people who don’t know, Comic Con is a fan convention for things like Anime, Toys, Video Games and the like. One thing people do when going to Comic Con is dress up in costume or Cosplay as a favorite character from anything from a TV show to Comic.
For this years Comic Con (also being our first), my brother wanted something interesting to wear, with the theme of Steampunk. He came across an Adafruit tutorial for Kaleidoscope Eyes project. This is a project that uses two NeoPixel Rings inside costume goggles for a cool light ring effect.
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.
