Halloween 2021 Candy Shoot with Arduino and Neopixels!
Thanks Elizabeth for sending this in! Elizabeth says: “This is a project that I made using NeoPixels to help me know
what candy to give a trick-or-treater while maintaining a good distance.
The Adafruit NeoPixel library is great! I love NeoPixels!”
Using an Arduino Uno, Neopixels, buttons and a clear PVC tube, a Halloween candy dispenser was made that allows distance between the trick-or-treaters and the candy giver.(www.hoganmade.net)
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.
