Arduino Backlight Project

I’m a gamer at times – I like to pillage innocent villages and build houses with blocks as much as the next guy.

I’ve never really mixed my addiction to gaming with my love for electronics, however I finally found a cool way of merging the two in aggressive harmony.

Today I’m showing you my Arduino Backlight project – great for games, films and anything else noisy!

First up, here’s a 60-second video of what the Arduino backlight looks like in action once fitted:

As you can see, when loud things happen, the Adafruit sound sensor picks that up, which makes the LEDs flare up behind my screen, adding an awesome immersion that makes it actually feel like I’m participating in hopeless trench warfare!

It’s all about loudness. Loud thing = flash.

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.
