Here are the DIY files so you can build your own DiscoBall. There are 3 main parts to DiscoBall, the centre, the alignment caps and the ribs. These files don’t include a portable power solution. I used a dc-dc converter, a lipo battery and charger that I could fit inside.
Reference images are in the images folder. Arduino IDE setup instructions are in the Software folder. All the parts you require including the Gerbers required to have the PCBs manufactured are above, start by reading the assembly pdf. I wish you luck and I’d love to see it if you make one, catch me on Twitter (@HiboTronix) and/or tag it with #Discoball : )
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
