Merry Christmas everybody.
This hat is made using an Adafruit FEATHER-Proto mico controller and a matrix of LED’s (Led Strip). Some of this video was shot before I had the FEATHER. I was using an Arduino during the test phase. The hat runs on a LiPo battery and runs for about 6 hours depending on the animation. The reason the sign doesn’t say “Merry Christmas” yet is because I’m out of memory and I have not yet come up with better code to fix the issue.
I hope you all have a great holiday!
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.
