How cool is this project?! We love that this project is able to personalize something that is already so historical and intimate. From bat Svilko on vimeo:
This project is about giving life to the traditional masks called Kuker. They are used in Bulgarian tradition to repel evil spirits and bad energies. For more information check the tutorials introduction The Kuker Revival!
In this first part of the Kuker revival series we will start with the most empty part of the Kuker – its eyes. We will enlighten them with Arduino powered Adafruit NeoPixel rings!
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.
