From the Forums: Homemade Athena Cykes Widget Necklace #cosplay
Hats off to forum user hanpan for going from concept to glowing reality with their Widget-inspired necklace for cosplay as Athena Cykes.
The basic concept is to cast a resin sphere to help diffuse the light and build the rest of the necklace’s “helmet” shape around that. The LEDs would fit in behind the sphere, and in an ideal world, I’d like to be able to switch between light blue and green.
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.
