Bluetooth-based costume props using Arduino and ESP32 #Bluetooth #ESP32 # Halloween #Arduino @Palantir555
Juan Carlos Jiménez writes: “We hosted a Halloween party for some friends last week, and I wanted to integrate my costume (whatever it was) with the house decorations. I only had a handful of evenings available to get everything up and running, so I had to build something just complex enough to entice guests to play with it. Preferably using parts I already had in the lab.”
It’s heavily based on the very rudimentary BLE GATT example included with the ESP32 libraries, and includes some pieces of code gathered online. It’s not pretty.
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.
