Minecraft Nightlight is Dad’s Gift for His Daughter, and it is Awesome #BLE #minecraft
Kids these days. Their toys include 3D-printed objects and IoT devices – amazing! And it’s also great when dad’s share their experience making projects, along with all the build files and code – thanks Matthew! This project has it all: 3D-printing, Arduino code, BLE, NeoPixel LEDs, tricks for compacting the circuit layout on perma-proto board, and more.
You can see an early test of the nightlight here:
And the fully-packaged complete build here:
Again, Matthew’s entire walkthrough – including STL files and Arduino code – are here on his blog.
Featured Adafruit Products!
Adafruit Pro Trinket – 5V 16MHz: Trinket’s got a big sister in town – the Pro Trinket 5V! Pro Trinket combines everything you love about Trinket with the familiarity of the common core Arduino chip, the ATmega328. It’s like an Arduino Pro Mini with more pins and USB tossed in, so delicious. Read more.
Bluefruit LE – Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.0) – nRF8001 Breakout – v1.0: Our Adafruit Bluefruit LE (Bluetooth Smart, Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth 4.0) nRF8001 Breakout allows you to establish an easy to use wireless link between your Arduino and any compatible iOS or Android (4.3+) device. It works by simulating a UART device beneath the surface, sending ASCII data back and forth between the devices, letting you decide what data to send and what to do with it on either end of the connection.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
