NEW GUIDE: PyPortal NeoPixel Color Picker #PyPortal #Adafruit #CircuitPython #AdafruitLearningSystem @Adafruit @CircuitPython

Adafruit PyPortal NeoPixel Color Picker

A new guide today in the Adafruit Learning System: PyPortal NeoPixel Color Picker

This simple project adds a little color to your life with CircuitPython, PyPortal and NeoPixels. Add two NeoPixel strips to your PyPortal, and display colored buttons that you can touch to set the LED colors. Wave your hand over the PyPortal light sensor to switch between controlling each strip separately or both together.

There’s no soldering needed for this project! The PyPortal has two 3-pin JST connectors on it, labeled D3 and D4. These connectors work perfectly with 3-pin JST NeoPixel strips.

To build this project, simply plug one of these NeoPixel strips into each of the two connectors on the PyPortal.

The complete guide including parts list and CircuitPython code is available here.
