Add gorgeous illumination to your favorite work of art with neopixels and Circuit Playground. This guide includes arduino code for a flame effect, and you can easily modify or add your own code to illuminate paintings of landscapes, rainbows, oceans, muscle cars, or whatever suits your style.
A small rosette serves as a capacitive touch on/off toggle switch. Touch it gently and the painting will flare up. Touch it again and the flames slowly fade to nothingness.
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.
