3D Printed Daft Punk Helmet with Bluetooth #WearableWednesday
In this DIY project, we’ll show you how to 3D print a Daft Punk helmet with Bluetooth controlled NeoPixel LEDs! You can use your smartphone or smartwatch to trigger animations and even change the colors of the NeoPixel LEDs with the Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect app on Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
In a previous project we made Guy-Manuel’s helmet and 3D printed it in just one piece. This time around we wanted to make Thomas Bangalter’s helmet but this time we wanted to make it lighter, have the ability to see through it and even apply some finishing techniques.
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.
