Curing morning grumpiness with the Zom-B-Gone DIY wake-up light @AppliedProc @hackadayio
Applied Procrastination combats morning grumpiness by making an artificial sunrise lamp to slowly prepare their body for waking up. They salvaged an old LCD screen from the garbage bin, and repurposed the backlighting elements to form a large distributed surface that can spread light evenly across an entire bedroom.
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.
