Party Parrot Zoetrope Learn Guide
Code on GitHub
Build a zoetrope inspired visual art display with 3D printed parts and Adafruit CRICKIT.
This creates the illusion of motion by rotating a series of acrylic panels that feature engravings of a single frame of animation.
A NeoPxiel illuminates the artwork engraving on the acrylic panels and changes color each frame to make a stunning effect.
Powered by the Adafruit CRICKIT and Feather M4 running CircuitPython, this uses a DC motor and a photo interrupter to trigger a NeoPixel whenever the sensor detects a break.
Adafruit CRICKIT for Feather
Feather M4 Express
NeoPixel Mini Button PCB
T-slot Photo Interrupter
5v-24v Adjustable Power Supply
10-Wire Ribbon Cable
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.
