Wearable Facade: NeoPixel Jacket with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Thanks so much to Ricardo for sending this great project in! Ricardo writes:
Hello, I did this project using adafruit products. Bellow the description and more on the link. We used 800 neopixels 4 fadecadies, one rasp and a camera. All powered by 3 batteries. IT was presented in some festivals so far and we would love to be featured on the adafruit website.
Happy holydays for everyone there and keep up the good work. Ricardo
FadeCandy – Dithering USB-Controlled Driver for NeoPixels: A new collaboration between Adafruit & Micah from Scanlime, we are excited to introduce Fadecandy, a NeoPixel driver with built in dithering, that can be controlled over USB. Fadecandy is not just hardware! It is a kit of both hardware and software parts that make LED art projects easier to build and better-looking so sculptors and makers and multimedia artists can concentrate on beautiful things instead of reinventing the wheel. It’s an easy way to get started and an advanced tool for professionals. It’s a collection of simple parts that work well together (read more)

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.
