NEW GUIDE: Adalight for Circuit Playground

NEW GUIDE: Adalight for Circuit Playground

One of my first projects with Adafruit was Adalight, an ambient lighting effect for media PCs, similar to the Ambilight feature of mid-2000s Philips TVs. Basically, matching what’s on the screen to a set of background lights to make the display pop!

All the pieces of the Adalight project — a microcontroller, addressable “smart” LEDs and a USB connection — are present today on the diminutive Circuit Playground board. Why not replicate this classic project on today’s affordable hardware?

This small remake is no substitute for the gargantuan Adalight builds that some users have created…but for laptops or small all-in-one PCs, it can be a fun project for a board you may already be learning with. There’s no soldering and no extra power supply this time around!

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.
