To add lighting effects to a costume, Nic Neidenbach turned to NeoPixel LEDs from Adafruit. He made a set of World of Warcraft armor from the game’s Cataclysm expansion. Instead of appearing metallic and being made from EVA foam, it’s a fabric based armor. The LEDs add just the right amount of glow at the sleeves and the shoulders.
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.
