For my project I decided to line the heart in a ‘I love NYC’ t shirt so that the heart lit up. I decided to make the lights fade in and out at a rather fast pace because it reminds me of the entertainment lights in restaurants and bars that cause people’s eyes to focus on them. I decided to make this because I am currently in a Wearable Technology class at the University of Cincinnati and thought it would be a cool and unique way for me to show the skills I have developed so far. It is a battery powered circuit that you turn on and off with the Lilypad ProtoSnap board. When on, the lights fade in and out around the heart bringing focus to that feeling.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
