After the amazing case to the dress that everybody sees in a different color, I decided to create a device that can easily find out the colour of an object.
To make the project more interesting, I considered making it communicate with a Lifx bulb. this kind of bulb can change color using its dedicated smartphone app or, as I did, using a Node.js application…
…The photoresists works similarly to our eyes as far as the answer to light is concerned: if the same object is illuminated by three different colors (red, green and blue), the photoresists receives three different answers in terms of wavelengths. The three answers will be calculated by the program and the result will be the color of the object.
Once acquired the value of the color, this will be sent to the lamp and the lamp will light on using the same color.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
