In this project, we’re making an internet connected On Air Sign. It will light up whenever your favorite Twitch channel start streaming. You can use this as visual notification or if you’re a broadcaster, this will let the people around know to be courteous!
It’s uses an Adafruit HUZZAH with ESP8266 or you can optionally use an Adafruit Feather M0 with WiFi.You’ll also need a strip of NeoPixel LEDs.
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.
