Well, here it is!!! This is my 2016 Christmas Lighting project. Same as last year, I used a Raspberry Pi and SSR to drive 7 channels of lights and 1 channel off a main. I definitely chose the wrong song this year with Mad Max. Super difficult to sync up with. I initially wanted to write a high-pass filter to grab all the beats but it turned out really bad so I decided to just procedurally write all the Python code again. Enjoy the 6 minutes of choreography!

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.
