Get Cyper Dino With An LED Stegosaurus Spike Hoodie #AdafruitWeekendProject #ElectronicHalloween
Dress up as a time-traveling dinosaur with these glowing stego spikes! This easy project mashes up 3D printing and sewing to make your own super-custom flexible spiky hooded sweatshirt.
For this project you will need:
12mm diffused flat digital pixel strand
FLORA main board
White NinjaFlex 3D printing filament
USB battery pack and cable
Plain cotton or cotton/poly sewing thread
Flush diagonal cutters
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.
