This project is the miniature version of my previous project called, “Connected Message Lamps” (https://youtu.be/5pWRA74EvRs). When I uploaded this project, one guy named Pranshu messaged me and said, I want to make this similar project connected lamps but in a small form factor and give it to my mom so that whenever I’m missing her I can just press the button and send her my feelings.
Each of these pendants (powered by an ESP8266) are connected to WiFi and communicate over multiple feeds using the Adafruit IO MQTT Broker. When the button on one pendant is pressed, the other pendant glows.

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.
