NEW GUIDE: John Park’s HalloWing Light Paintstick @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
With the HalloWing Light Paintstick, you can create beautiful light paintings with pixel art magically floating in mid-air using a strip of NeoPixels and the HalloWing or Circuit Playground Express! Start with a bitmap up to 30 x 100 pixels, and then capture the image with a long exposure photograph!
These components, plus some zip ties and a yardstick (optionally painted gray to look awesome) are all you’ll need.
It’s not just about light trails, either, you can use the “stamp” mode to draw bitmaps in mid-air.
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.
