Thanks to Matt from Blinkinlabs for alerting us to this project! Check out more info here.
Will from Fuzzletek put together this epic PC casemod, complete with water cooling and a custom light effects using BlinkyTape. Going way beyond a standard chase pattern, he put together a synchronized light show using after effects and a custom software bridge to map the position of the lights into the video. He goes into deeper detail in the making-of video:
BlinkyTape by Blinkinlabs: BlinkyTape is a very special LED strip, taking the smarts of NeoPixels and combining it with an Arduino-compatible for an all-in-one ready to go design. You don’t have to source your own microcontroller, power supply or connectors. Simply plug in a standard USB battery pack or wall charger, and you’re good to blink. Read more.
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.
