Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project
(Note: Google+ login required.)
This week Andrew Arace shared his cozy Beach/Concert Blanket (with sewn in flickering LEDs!) in our community.
Outdoor blanket from Target
Adafruit GEMMA v2
4 Adafruit Neopixels
4-wire 24awg spool from nearby going-out-of-business RadioShack
I broke the seams of the edging, and threaded the wire through 3 sides of the blanket, and re-sewed the seams.
I came up with a creative conductive thread to solid wire connection by sewing down a wire, and used 3 wires of the 4 strand for power and data.
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
This week on the blog we shared Frederick Vandenbosch’s build for his awesome magic lamp project
The idea for this little project is to have a lamp which can be turned on or off simply by moving it on a desk.
A wireless charging base is built into the desk’s surface, and a circuit with microcontroller and LEDs gets powered wirelessly using the charging coil.
