NEW GUIDE: John Park’s MUNNY Glowing BLE Friend @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
With this new MUNNY Glowing Friend with Bluetooth Control! guide from John Park, you can customize your own blank vinyl figure into a Bluetooth LE controlled, Glowing Friend! MUNNY DIY is a designer toy figure designed to be modified. So, instead of simply painting him to change his appearance, let’s fill him with electronics so he can glow all the colors of the rainbow at the touch of a wireless button!
Code it in Arduino or CircuitPython, and use the Adafruit Prop-Maker Wing paired with a Feather M0 Bluefruit LE board to drive a 3W RGB LED. Communications will come from the free Adafruit Bluefruit Connect app on your iOS or Android device! You can even transfer these techniques to other glowing props, costume pieces, artwork, and anything else you like!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
