For the Elegant Blinky Halloween: LED Masquerade Masks #ElectronicHalloween
Got a costume ball coming up? Learn to adorn masquerade masks with LEDs, three ways!
This guide will show you how to make three masks at different difficulty levels:
Super Simple Sequin Mask: A few LED sequins and battery pack, no programming or microcontroller required! Just a little soldering and glueing will get you illuminated accents in under an hour.
NeoPixel GEMMA Mask: If it’s color-changing animations you crave, wire up some individual NeoPixels and a GEMMA microcontroller. Use our sample code or write your own animations! 1-4 hours, depending on your soldering experience
Audio-Reactive Mask: A microphone monitors audio levels and uses loudness to control the brightness of some LED sequins. Use our sample code or mod it up to do something different. 1-4 hours, depending on your soldering experience
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.
