Build A Color Changing Bicycle Taillight With Arduino
Get fancy with bike safety with a color changing taillight using Arduino. via instructables
I am a cycling enthusiast.
Years ago when I am a young handsome man, in my second year at College, I had completed the ride from Sichuan to Tibet, the famous G318 in China. It is known as the world’s most beautiful and dangerous road. If there’s a chance, you should got there to just take a look.
Time flies, now I am a baby’s father already. Each time I think of that journey , my heart will still hysterical. But you would never have time and energy to make it again.
Cu’z the love of bicycle, I was thinking DIY many thing on the bike, suck as the taillight, a stopwatch, burglar alarm, GPS tracker and so on, it’s too many to list it. But time is always limit, I don’t ever get started. Today, I am going to make it happen. Make this taillight to start.
This taillight is based on Ardino, thus this is programmable and customizable, it’s your own taillight, and it’s unparalleled.
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.
