Hex Crystals: A sound responsive light sculpture #ArtTuesday
Thanks to Keith Hartwig for writing in about this project he worked on! Check out more here. Keith writes:
In 2015 Nicholas Auman and I were commissioned byPhiladelphia music collective WorldTown SoundSystem to design and build a sound responsive light sculpture for their upcoming residency at CODA nightclub. After hitting the forums we opted to use Fadecandy micro-controllers and Neopixel LEDs for the project. We used Processing to code the project and we partnered with VJ Paul Dietrick to create a synchronized projection for the project. Because we used your products, and benefited from the online community at Adafruit I thought we should share the project with you!
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.
