Rainbow Pride Traffic Lights and #MakeRobotFriend Crossing Sign – #CircuitPython

Adafruit’s favorite punster caitlinsdad has built yet another funkadelic project up on Instructables.

So I have an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express board to play with. This project seems like a good way to learn CircuitPython programming and to get more familiar with the Mu Editor and REPL function.

The board is capable of driving Neopixels which are the LED strips I have encased in the traffic light shells…… One of the advantages of developing with CircuitPython is that I was able to quickly change parameters and code. It allowed me to get all the timings and colors working on the correct Neopixels as I went along.

And as if this wasn’t enough, caitlinsdad made a #MakeRobotFriend crossing sign with a Circuit Playground Express

You can find all the fun up on Instructables!

What’s your latest project? Does it pun the dedicated Adafruit crew?!? Let us know in the comments!

 


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.
