This week’s Community Corner features two projects from the blog! Adafruit customer cwells97 posted a great Halloween project on the Adafruit forums! Check out more here.

I found a cheap Halloween mask when I was shopping at Kroger.

I thought it looked cool, but things are always better with NeoPixels. I bought the mask and starting taking measurements to see which NeoPixel rings would best fit into my design. I ended up using two of the 16 count rings in the side filters and one 24 count ring which fit perfectly onto the front of the mask. I wanted to give some direct view of the NeoPixels with the larger ring and use the smaller ones facing backwards to create a side glow on the wearers head. A gemma was used for the controller, which was nice and small since I did not want any of the circuit to actually sit on my face. Epoxy was used to hold the wires in place.(read more)


Also on the blog this week, we posted about Craig’s awesome Gortobot project! You can view where Gortobot is here and read more about the project here.

The Gortobot project has a goal of sailing a small, robotic boat around the world.(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.
