NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Ninja Timer:Giant 7-Segment Display @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Here’s a new guide on how to make a huge seven segment display timer for a ninja warrior obstacle course! Or, any other need you have for a super big timer or clock. Segments are made from NeoPixel strips, diffused through acrylic, and controlled via massive arcade buttons and an Arduino!
Here it is in action at the UNAA (United Ninja Athlete Association) competition at Train Yard 317 being used to time each run.
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.
