OK we’re about ready to fabricate these LED glasses panels. Lots of LEDs, in a cool grid/circular design! Of course, we have to test each board so that we know all the LEDs were placed properly. Thus, the tester! We’re going with a simple R/G/B test, with visual inspection.
We’ll also check out the built in test-mode the IS31FL3741 has, so we verify all the RGBs two ways. Check out the fancy silkscreen, we’ll have these in the shop sooooooon – video.
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.
