John Park’s Remote Effects Trigger Box @adafruit @johnedgarpark
You can trigger remote effects — such as smoke, lights, pyro, music, and motors — by building your own long-range, sub-GHz transceiver! This video, and the accompanying learning guide will show you how.
Avoid all that messy 2.4GHz spectrum noise, what with all of its overcrowded Bluetooth and WiFi shenanigans. Instead, enjoy the clarity and power of low-bandwidth, long-range packet radio signals with a range of up to two kilometers line-of-sight! Control your Feather and Arduino projects reliably at crowded festivals and concerts, both indoors and out. You can customize your menus and buttons to fit your exact application, with as many matched receiving controllers as you need, and 3D print the case to your exact specifications.
I built mine to trigger illusions for interactive magic/escape room performances, as well as another to control lighting effects for a touring circus troupe. For what will you use yours??
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.
