Make Sound Reactive LED Halo Hat #WearableWednesday
Take your hat out and make a scene with this fun build from QuackMasterDan on Instructables:
At its core, it is a LED ribbon, attached to a wire ring with zip-ties, attached to a hat/baseball-cap. LED sound-control is by a SP107E (on Amazon) LED Controller which has an embedded microphone. Then just connect power to a 5v supply (USB Battery Pack), it fits in your pocket and is good to go!
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.
