LED LightShow Goggles with MakeCode: Adafruit Trinket M0

YouTube user MakeCode and Hardware has a new video out with a pair of LED goggles using NeoPixel rings and an Adafruit Trinket M0 microcontroller running Microsoft MakeCode, the easy to use block programming language.

Here’s a hat with goggles and 12 x LED Neopixel light rings for fun, wearable light shows!

The whole thing was programmed with MicroSoft MakeCode on a $79 Chromebook! You can do this off line even with a Chromebook. Adafruit Trinket M0 ($8.95) controller. You must find MakerMakeCode to get the Trinket M0 board: https://maker.makecode.com/#editor

Below is the code for this project. https://makecode.com/_7kCTP3TPh9X7

NeoPixel ring 12x RGB LED: must be 2812 type: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RGB-LED-Ring…

Adafruit Trinket M0 : you do not want the Trinket 5v, because it will not work with MakeCode, you want the Trinket M Zero (Trinket M0) 170 tie hole solderless breadboard. I used double sided green gardener Velcro tape to secure the goggles to the hat. Velcro squares are stuck to the hat to then stick to the green strip.

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.
