DIY Blinking High Chair using Adafruit Pro Trinket!

Thanks for sending this in Matt! Via Timbartlett

This is four arcade buttons and four smart full-color LEDs, drilled into an IKEA Antilop high chair (a spare tray is $5). The brain is a 5v Adafruit Pro Trinket, powered by four AA batteries.

The default mode is the same as the blinky my dad made for me long ago: press the red button and the red light lights up, press the green button and the green light lights up, and so on.

Holding down all the buttons at once lets you switch modes: mode two is like mode one, except each light stays on until the next one is pressed. Mode three is like a typewriter, and mode four is a step sequencer.

This was my first time programming with the FastLED library to control the LEDs. Download the code here.

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.
