3D Hangouts Livestream Today with @videopixil @ecken

Hi folks, we’re doing this thing today☕️⚡️ Livestream starts at 11:00 am ET on all the socials. Hope to see you on the Discord, bye!

This week @adafruit we’re making an audio reactive light bar using NeoPixels and CircuitPython. Prototyping a zoetrope with Adafruit Crickit featuring Party Parrot. The timelapse this week is a fractal star fidget printed using quantum filament from Matterhackers. It’s quite colorful this week!
