Adafuit Neopixels power the world’s first World’s First Wearable On-Demand Running Christmas Tree Service #WearableWednesday
Thanks to Joseph Tame for sharing his fun project with us! He wrote in:
Over the past two years your blog and store have encouraged me to try my hand at making all sorts of stuff, but my latest invention has been the most ambitious to date – a 1500-LED wearable Christmas tree, powered by 99 AA batteries channeled through 9 of your finest UBECs to 24 metres of Neopixels.
The response here in Tokyo has been fabulous!
I just wanted to thank you for helping me so much in making this happen – and if you’d like to share it with your community I’d be delighted!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
