NEW GUIDE: Talking Musical NeoPixel Clock #AdafruitLearningSystem
A beautiful use of the 60 LED NeoPixel ring as a clock that also talks! This all new project uses the Adafruit Feather M0 Bluefruit LE board for both brains and Bluetooth communications. You can also add an optional infrared receiver to interact with the clock with a remote. The Swiss Army of clocks.
The guide has step by step instructions, full code written for the Arduino IDE, and wave files for the voice.
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.
