NEW GUIDE: Twin Peaks Light Reactive Picture Frame #PyPortal #Adafruit #AdafruitLearningSystem #TwinPeaks @Adafruit @BlitzCityDIY

A new guide today in the Adafruit Learning System: Twin Peaks Light Reactive Picture Frame

As you probably know by now, the Adafruit PyPortal has quite a few built-in hardware features. In this project, we’re going to take advantage of the light sensor, which allows you to have a built-in, light sensitive analog input. We’re going to use that light sensor to change between two pictures on the PyPortal. If there isn’t enough light hitting the sensor, then the picture will change and play an audio file; otherwise the original picture will remain displayed.

This particular instance of this project concept is based on the cult classic TV series Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks is about the mythical town of Twin Peaks in Washington State and the many mysterious, creepy and bizarre happenings there that all seem to center around Laura Palmer.

See this new tutorial here and a build video below. Pass the pie and pour me a nice cup of coffee.


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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
