What You Made – Signal-to-Noise Media Labs Open Windows at Denver International Airport #ArtTuesday #Adafruit #neopixels #fadecandy

Jeff Merkel contacted us to share about his project Open Windows at the Denver International Airport created by him and his group Signal-to-Noise Media Labs.

Here’s what he had to say:

I run a group called Signal-to-Noise Media Labs here in Denver and I just finished my first large-scale piece for Denver International Airport. It’s an 8×8 grid (per side) of your 60 LED neopixel rings in translucent enclosures driven by 16 Fadecandy, 16 power supplies, 2 Linux boxes and is reactive through the Asus Xtion.

We’ll be posting the entire build, process, documentation, and code soon but we weren’t aloud to talk about it until it’s release. It’s completely open source and we’ll be using it as a teaching tool for newcomers to our group. Anyone can develop for it!…

It still has a few little glitches that we need to iron out (like some intermittent flickering), but it’s up running, and looking pretty cool. It’s going to be the first of (hopefully) a bunch of ongoing permanent interactive installs we’ll be doing with them and a few other Denver locations.

Thanks again for all the awesome stuff you make!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
