Magic comes to this Dr. Strange costume thanks to Adafruit
Gemma, NeoPixels and LSM303 Accelerometer. The fingers light up randomly
when the hands are raised to cast spells and magnets in the tips of the
fingers activate the companion project Eye of Agamotto
(http://www.instructables.com/id/Eye-of-Agamotto/). All code and 3D printed
files are linked so that others can make it themselves!
P.S. Extra shout out to adafruit_support_bill for help with the hall effect
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.
