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!
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.
