For this task I’ve created a 901 pixel LED sculpture using papier mache to form the structure on which the RGB LED strips (ws2811) are mounted. An origami structure is mounted over the surface to create a diffuser. The system comprises of a Raspberry Pi 3b + Teensy 3.6 + Octows2811 adapter and 5v 60A power supply unit. Glediator software is used in ‘demo’ mode here.

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.
