Circuit Playground Gothic Lantern Update by @TinWhiskerzBlog

Bill Rainford shared on his Blog:

Scary Smart Gothic Lantern

This post captures my entry into the Adafruit Extra Credit / Circuit Playground contest of 2017. I made a fun, interactive ‘Scary Smart’ Gothic Lantern which I will describe in this post… I bought the Adafruit CircuitPlayground Developer Edition when it first came out and gave it a try — it was a fun little board and was something I’d tinker with on a long flight and recommend to friends starting out, but I didn’t have a solid use for it, in terms of a project as by the time I got it I had progressed in my electronics/maker projects to the point where I was designing my own boards etc. Then I saw the folks at Adafruit post about building this great looking Gothic Lantern and added a small enclosure to house a circuit playground to light it up and it really resonated with me.
