Taking what I've learned about LED color mixing and Python, along with our LumiDrive LED Driver and LuMini LED Ring, I set out to create a light ring for macro photography that surpasses all others.
Let's check out my third design to control LEDs based on movement using an accelerometer!
Last week, we took a look at using the digital pins on our new LumiDrive LED Driver. This week, we'll play with the analog pins, and see if we can't put something together using both!
We have another new RedBoard today and it's gone turbo-tastic! But we can't forget about the Qwiic MP3 Trigger and Lumini 8x8 Matrix, too!
Wes and I collaborated on some code to take your current Spotify album art and display it on a 64x64 LED matrix. Let's check it out!
If you're looking to try coding in Python, especially as it translates to the world of physical computing, the SparkFun LumiDrive is a great way to get started.
This week we have the new GPS-RTK2 Board, a LED Driver that utilizes MicroPython, and three APA102 LED Rings!
Chances are, you may never use all 16 million colors available to you with your RGB LEDs. But whatever colors you use, you should know how to smoothly fade from one color to another. And thanks to the wonders of math, now you can!
It's like clap-on, clap-off, but nerdier.
