This started out as a one day project for the SupplyFrame office, but turned into a much bigger display project that took us a few days to complete. We built a gorgeous frame out of Foamed PVC board and white acrylic and placed 96 RGB LEDs, a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino Micro inside. Everyone in the office pitched in, a real team effort that is hanging on the wall at SupplyFrame HQ!
Since the original build we had a lot of problems with the cheap badly soldered LEDs we used, so we are in the process of upgrading the array to 52×34 LEDs!
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.
