From the Forums: Skeleton crows with red, blinky eyes #ItsyBitsy #Adafruit #Halloween @Adafruit
Adafruit Forums user MitchellJThomas posts about adding glowing eyes to skeleton crows for Halloween.
Idea: A murder of skeleton grows hangs in the pine trees staring at you with glowing red eyes blinking every so often
1. both red eyes blink every so often on a 10 minute loop (long enough for someone to stare at them for a bit and then move on)
2. each crow is self powered for at least 6 hours
3. electronics budget for each crow is less than $20
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.
