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??
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
