NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Stroboscopic Zoetrope @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

You can build your own animation machine, the Stroboscopic Zoetrope! This new guide in the Learn System shows you how.

Use blinking light to animate spinning faces, all synced up by Crickit! A disc powered by a Crickit-driven DC motor spins your objects, while the Circuit Playground Express NeoPixels strobe the light needed to create persistence of vision animation! All programmed with MakeCode. Make your own Zoetrope!


The guide will teach you all you need to know about using the Crickit and Circuit Playground Express to strobe NeoPixel LEDs in sync with DC motor rotation to create the effect. Plus, it includes three great face examples by animator Joe Bowers!


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.
