NEW GUIDE: Infinity Mirror Valentine’s Candy Boxes #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #ValentinesDay @Adafruit @KathyCeceri

Infinity Mirror Valentine's Candy Boxes

A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System in time for Valentine’s Day: make your sweet an Infinity Mirror Valentine’s Candy Box.

Kathy Ceceri shows you how anyone can make these animated candy boxes with no soldering or advances skills required.

An infinity mirror is an optical illusion that makes a single row of lights look like countless rows of lights, receding into the void forever. It’s created by placing a one-way mirror over a second mirror with lights in-between. The lights turn the upper mirror transparent from the outside. Inside, the two mirrored surfaces reflect each other in ever decreasing images. The lights appear to be marching in perspective towards a vanishing point, which gives them the feeling of depth.

This guide will show you how to build an infinity mirror box lid and light it two different ways:

Both versions can be used to store treasures after the candy is gone and are kid-friendly. The Animated Box uses AAA batteries and a Gemma M0 microcontroller that’s inexpensive enough to build in permanently.

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.
