Microscope Illuminator Modified with NeoPixel Ring for Dark-Field Microscopy | #citizenscience #microscopy
Very cool project from Forums user Kenn who modified the illuminator on their Bausch & Lomb microscope to give more control over RGBW values, with the aid of a 24 LED NeoPixel ring and Adafruit Pro Trinket. They’ve detailed more about their process in a PDF document – available here.
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.
