How To Make Synchronized LED Disney Mouse Ears #WearableWednesday
You may, at some point, have occasion to one of the many Disneylands in the world. And if you do, you may go with your family. Sure, you could make up personalized T-shirts to identify each other in the rough and tumble world of Main Street, USA. Or you could make your own hats with Mickey Mouse ears with Neopixels that sync with other hats nearby. Here’s more from Element 14:
These light-up Mickey Mouse Ears show Neopixel animations and sync with other ear hats nearby, for the ultimate Disney group attire! The sync is made possible using the micro:bit’s internal radio to broadcast different animation modes. We designed animations to match different attractions across the park, so we could really get into the theme of each ride.
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.
