NEW GUIDE: Superhero Power Gauntlet using @Adafruit #Feather and #NeoPixels #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #3Dprinting #TheRPF #Prop #WearableWednesday

A “super” new guide in the Adafruit Learning System today: a Superhero Power Gauntlet

This project will help you build a super hero glove that lights up, plays sound, and reacts to your movement. The sound effects are easy to change and if you are willing to get into a bit of code the LEDs are easy to adjust as well.

This project involves electronics, 3D printing with post production painting, and some premade Arduino Code.

The project uses an Adafruit Feather 32u4 board, an Adafruit Audio FX Mini sound board, and an accelerometer to detect hand movements. And of course bright NeoPixels in the center of your palm.

Pair this with a Superhero chest power plant build detailed here.

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, 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.
