NEW TUTORIAL: Glowing LED Team Badge for Pokemon Go

Pokemon go has shown us that people can really go crazy over running around our cities bent on catching imaginary animals. It has also shown us that people are going crazy over chasing down said animals at all hours of the night and not always paying attention to what is going on around them. This is amplified when we are talking about children that are having a blast literally trying to catch them all.

We set out to think of a way to increase the visibility of these players while adding a fun new way to add something to the user’s game play. What we came up with was a device that let’s you display what team you are on and flash noticeably when the player is walking. Adafruit’s Circuit Playground provided the perfect platform to start with.

Best of all, no soldering is required!

If you have never used the Circuit Playground before, here is a wonderful guide to get you started.
