Star Guardian Urgot
from League of Legends! I wore this to Anime Expo in LA last weekend and had
a BLAST! I learned so much about the capabilities of Arduino boards and
Neopixels, and thanks to this build I am so much more confident in coding!
For Urgot I used an Arduino Uno, and 2 Trinkets to power about 200 RGB Leds.
(I had planned to use 3 trinkets, but one of them literally blew away in a
Urgot has 6 Neopixel Jewels and about 5M of strips on his
body! Everything was powered by portable 5V cell phone chargers that I hid
throughout the armor. The Adafruit tutorials and Neopixel Uberguide were BY
FAR the most helpful tools in making this costume an animated, glowy
success! I really just wanted to thank you guys for providing such a high
quality array of products and learning resources. ADAFRUIT IS THE BEST. I
can’t wait to start my next glowy costume!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
