Color-controlled lighting has become increasingly popular, and, although sometimes it is purely ornamental, there is enough scientific evidence to show that the color of the light in your environment has a direct impact on your circadian rhythm.
There are multiple options in the market to buy off-the-shelf “Smart” lightbulbs and LED strips, that you can control with your mobile phone. However, wouldn’t it be fun to build your own with Simulink?
In this post, we’ll show you how you can do just that using Simulink, a Raspberry Pi with a Sense HAT add-on board, and your iPhone.
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.
