I don’t know about you, but one of the most crucial moments of proclaiming my identity as a child was deciding which TNMT I most related to (it’s Leonardo, for the record). This wonderful instructable from bobbi.stromer has me feeling all nostalgic like a Halloween Hero in a Half Shell (Turtle Power!)
This tutorial will show you how to create a colorful TMNT pumpkin! It will focus on the design and programming of LED that lights up the pumpkin.
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.
