The tree looks about 20-24″ tall and can accommodate a length of LED strip about 4 meters long wrapped around 7 levels of the tree – a DFPlayer mini MP3 player is included for musical effect. The tree design could clearly be used for other purposes as well. Watch:
Translated from Italian via Google Translate:
The WS2812B neo-pixel strip attaches it to 3D printed plastic supports that allow you to reuse it in other projects by mounting and dismounting it for each project.
Today is Christmas and I published the article as a Merry Christmas and to show you what you can do with the WeMos D1 DFPlayer mini mp3 and a led strip of LEDs 60 LED per meter of about 4 meters long.
Next week you will read how to make all the necessary parts for the Neopixel WS2812 control unit and mp3 music.
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.
