Internet of Scoreboard Uses NeoPixels for Display, is Controlled by Particle Photon | #IoT #IoTuesday #scoreboard @particle
Rad project sent to us by Brandon from Whilethegluedries (great name, btw!). One tip I take away is cutting out the 7 segment display shape twice. This allows greater flexibility when working inside the box, allowing you to glue to and mount to and generally use the interior birch plywood material – instead of mounting directly to the interior frosted material. I don’t play Smash Bros myself but I appreciate Brandon’s enthusiasm for wanting to build a custom scoreboard!
Ever wanted a scoreboard? Ever wanted a Internet connected scoreboard? I did so I made one.
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.
