Alex Glow’s Blinkenlights for Burning Man & Beyond #NeoPixels #Feather #FeatherHUZZAH
This tutorial from Alex Glow on Hackster.io has it ALL!
Whether you’re going to that thing in the desert, or just keeping safe and visible around town, you can definitely find an excuse to light some stuff up! This tutorial is going to focus on LED strip lights, but I’ll start with a bunch of options you might not be aware of. Then, we’ll cover:
Choosing your LED strip
Supplying power and (optionally) a smart controller
Designing your system
This tutorial is for general lighting purposes; if you’re building a huge LED installation or matrix, you’ll probably need a more specific tutorial for that.
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.
