Elektor LABS Project: ESP8266 web server for Neopixel LED strips
The Sept/Oct 2018 issue of ElektorLabs Magazine has a guide for controlling WS2812B NeoPixel LED strips using a simple web server powered by the ESP8266 – the interface itself is really straightforward, with a drop-down menu for brightness and the ability to input 1 of 44 pre-coded examples:
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.
