This is a WiFi enabled traffic light. This means it is controlled by an ESP8266 (Wemos D1 Mini). You can plug it in via USB and reprogram it. What it displays, or how, is under your control. In my case it’s a Jenkins build status monitor.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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.

Hi there awsome work. I saw your project on Thingiverse last week since I need a traffic light for one of my university projects. I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m not really sure how to make it work. Do you think you can give me some more details on how to set up the wifi module and how to connect the LEDs? It’s probably just me but I can’t figure out much with the pictures you uploaded. Would really appreciate that.
