A beautiful build from Martina at Youtube channel Nerdforge. She builds a 3-D fountain using foam, 3-D printed “crystals”, a water pump, and lighting.
I wanted to make something made of transparent filament that I could make glowing with LED lights, and so I decided to 3D print some crystals – but I couldn’t just have those alone, which is why I ended up making this DIY indoor desktop fountain with a waterfall and overgrown by moss! I haven’t done anything this similar to miniature landscaping before, but I had a lot of fun doing it!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
