NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Ambient Color Control Pad @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
This new guide from John Park lets you color control NeoPixels at the push of a button! Build your own Ambient Color Control Pad and make it easy to set colors on NeoPixel strips. Embed them in a huge, colorful, glowing orb, behind a monitor, or above a cabient. NeoTrellis multicolor controller, say hello to NeoPixels!
Use the NeoTrellis with a Feather M4 Express to select colors that illuminate your world. The control pad sends your color selections to a 2m strip of 120 NeoPixels. Gorgeous diffusion courtesy of an inexpensive white plastic lamp, or pick your own diffuser! All programmed with CircuitPython for your coding pleasure.
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.
