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.
