Who knew Circuit Playground would ever team up with a Pringles can? Great project from Mike Barela shared this week in our Community!

Using your snack can to do fun things with an +Adafruit Industries #CircuitPlayground board. A hint: First lit up with a NeoPixel, second – using the accelerometer to change which NeoPixel is lit. Fun, inexpensive, informative. (read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

FlashHat2

This week on the blog, we shared Andrew Staroscik‘s awesome sound sensitive LED baseball cap project.

This is my first foray into wearable electronics. It is a sound activated hat. There is a microphone below the bill of the hat that picks up the voice of the wearer as well as ambient noise. The sound is converted to light using a small board sewn into the back of the hat. The light patterns in the animated image to the left are random flashes triggered by sound. The intensity of each flash varies with sound level. (read more)
