Thanks to Lucky Resistor for sending us this project!
I just published the guide for the five light spheres project. An artful decoration for this winter.
It uses an Adafruit Feather M0 Basic Proto as microcontroller and 10 Flora NeoPixels to create the wonderful color combinations.
Featured Adafruit Product!
Flora RGB Smart NeoPixel version 2 – Sheet of 20: So, you want lots and lots of NeoPixels? And you want them for less? Not a problem! Here’s a sheet of Flora NeoPixels fresh from the (reflow) oven. Cut them off as you need ’em and save a pretty penny while you’re at it.
Each order comes with 20 pixels on a sheet. If you want a smaller number, we also have them in packs of 4. We suggest cutting them out with diagonal cutters or heavy-duty scissors. (read more)
Adafruit Feather M0 Basic Proto – ATSAMD21 Cortex M0: Feather is the new development board from Adafruit, and like its namesake it is thin, light, and lets you fly! We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.
At the Feather M0’s heart is an ATSAMD21G18 ARM Cortex M0 processor, clocked at 48 MHz and at 3.3V logic, the same one used in the new Arduino Zero. This chip has a whopping 256K of FLASH (8x more than the Atmega328 or 32u4) and 32K of RAM (16x as much)! This chip comes with built in USB so it has USB-to-Serial program & debug capability built in with no need for an FTDI-like chip. (read more)
