Harry Potter Golden Snitch Motorized Wing Ring #ElectronicHalloween
Not to brag, but I’ve been a Harry Potter fan for over fifteen years. So, naturally, when I came across this incredible Golden Snitch project tutorial, I nearly took flight (but, alas, my broom was in the shop). Check out this great project if you’re leaning towards a Hogwarts Halloween this year.
This is just a quick build for those Harry Potter Quidditch fans out there. Based on same technology found in the Motorized Quidditch Golden Snitch,
This is a smaller version that can be worn as a ring. So yeah, Go Ravenclaw!
Craft your own Harry Potter Quidditch Golden Snitch to wear on your finger. Capture the magic when it’s wings rotate with a sleight of hand on your command. Conjure up one today.
This is a great first project for the little crafting wizards out there.
CAUTION: The object itself and contents contain small parts and are not to be taken internally.
Tilt ball switch: The “poor man’s” accelerometer! Tilt sensors are switches that can detect basic motion/orientation. The metal tube has a little metal ball that rolls around in it, when its tilted upright, the ball rolls onto the contacts sticking out of end and shorts them together. (read more)

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.
