A rainbow coaster with NeoPixels and CircuitPython #NeoPixels #CircuitPython @chardane
Charlyn makes a rainbow NeoPixel coaster programmed in CircuitPython using an Adafruit Trinket Mo.
One of my good friends, Amit, owns a massive mug collection. And they’re not just any mugs – these are beautiful, clever, and unique, just like he is! So, … I made him this glowy coaster to compliment his collection.
The rainbow animation is a classic from Adafruit’s CircuitPython Neopixel Essentials, and I didn’t feel like I had to create anything more elaborate than this. Check out the video below if you want to see the subtle animation in action.
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.
