New guide on the Adafruit Learning System: Circuit Playground Jack-o’-Lantern
Claws-down, Halloween is my favorite holiday. Add some electronics to the mix and it’s an unstoppable force of nature.
In this simple no-soldering-required project we’ll make the Adafruit Circuit Playground board act like a flickering candle. Pop this inside a jack-o’-lantern (or any other item that might normally use flame) to create a festive spooky atmosphere.
Once Halloween’s over (how sad!) the Circuit Playground board can be used again in endless other projects.
In addition to the code for Circuit Playground you’ll find some tips on pumpkin stencils and a tangent on fractal geometry, because why not?
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Every day this month we’ll be bringing you ideas and projects for an Electronic Halloween! Expect wearables, hacks & mods, costumes and more here on the Adafruit blog!
