John Park’s Remote Effect Trigger Box Wireless NeoPixel Control @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

The Remote Effect Trigger Box is a packet radio 900MHz Feather-powered, general purpose effects controller that can be used to remotely trigger motors, lights, illusions, sound, pyro, smoke, trap doors, and mind-controlled shark assassins. And blenders. Here’s a demonstration of the controller triggering effects from a block away, line of sight.  

John Park’s Remote Effect Trigger Box Illusion Demo @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

The Remote Effect Trigger Box is a packet radio 900MHz Feather-powered, general purpose effects controller that can be used to remotely trigger motors, lights, illusions, sound, pyro, smoke, trap doors, and mind-controlled shark assassins. And blenders. This demo shows the remote being used to trigger both an AC powered spot light, and a stepper-motor based card levitation.  

John Park’s Remote Effects Trigger Box UI Demo @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

The Remote Effect Trigger Box is a packet radio 900MHz Feather-powered, general purpose effects controller that can be used to remotely trigger motors, lights, illusions, sound, pyro, smoke, trap doors, and mind-controlled shark assassins. And blenders. This is a demo of the user interface — the rotary encoder knob switches between menu banks, the keypad allows for 16 different triggers per menu bank.  

CurieBot: Arduino 101 Robot Kit @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #intel

Welcome to CurieBot, your own mobile, customizable, and adorable, 32-bit, Bluetooth-enabled driving robot!   Based upon our popular three-layer round robot platform, CurieBot brings some special sauce to the table — delicious Arduino 101 sauce, that is! This powerful board comes in a familiar Arduino form factor, so you can use many of your favorite shields, such as the included Adafruit MotorShield v2. It’s an excellent introduction to our wide world of robotics!  

John Park’s NeoPixel Level Shifter @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

Solve microcontroller-to-NeoPixel mismatches with a level shifter. 3v3 micros can talk with 5V NeoPixels, they just need a translator. That translator is the ever handy logic level shifter. Often, a mismatch of logic levels can cause strange behavior, such as dim or wrong-colored pixels — especially on longer wire runs or in projects that use large numbers of NeoPixels. Also, a look at transferring your project from breadboard to permanent Perma Proto board.  

John Park’s Light Paintbrush @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #CircuitPlayground

Paint with light using the Circuit Playground Light Paintbrush for long exposure photography. Tilt the brush to change colors using the on-board accelerometer.   Streaks of colorful light, suspended in midair — ever since people began to capture images on film we have had a fascination with light painting and light drawing. By simply moving a light source in front of an open shutter, motion over time could be captured on camera.  

John Park’s Conductive Paint Stencil Mask @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

Here’s a quick tip on using a stencil mask for painting with conductive ink. Creating circuits with conductive ink is fun and easy. If you’d like to add form to your function and increase the design appeal of your conductive ink circuits, try using a stencil mask. This circuit was designed in Rhino to fit the Circuit Playground and laser cut from Mylar.  

John Park’s Circuit Playground Class Scheduler @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #CircuitPlayground

Keep track of tricky schedules, Monday through Friday with the Circuit Playground Class Scheduler! The Circuit Playground’s NeoPixels are used as indicators for day of the week and class periods, color coded per subject. You can enter a complex schedule that varies daily in the sketch, and then click the buttons on your Circuit Playground to find out which class is next.
