Make your favorite skateboarder a light up board they’ll love! #AdafruitWeekendPresent
Trick out that skateboard present with this
Adafruit Trinket NeoPixel Longboard tutorial.
Upgrade your ride with NeoPixel LEDs. In this project we’re upgrading a longboard with more neopixels, making a very bright and safe summer night ride!
In this project we’re going to use the Trinket micro-controller to power 100 NeoPixel LEDs with a Powerboost 500C and 2500mAh lithium polymer battery.
2 NeoPixel Ring 16x
1 NeoPixel LED Strip 30 – 1m
1 Powerboost 500C
1 Trinket 5V
1 2500mAh Lithium ion Polymer Battery
1 Slide Switch
Tools & Supplies
Male/Male Jumper Cables
Female/Female Jumper Cables
JST Extension Cable

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.
