Chrooke's Animator and Awesome Detector
This is the code for my Animator and Awesome Detector.
This is meant to run on an Arduino board with an LED matrix. A piezo buzzer can be added for sound. The "Awesome Detector" functionality also requires an ultrasonic range finder.
My device was built with several parts from the Adafruit ADABOX 001. Specifically:
In addition I used
- Maxbotix Ultrasonic Rangefinder - LV-EZ1
- a small project box (lost the info, sorry)
It should be possible to build a similar device using other Arduino-compatible dev boards and addressable LED pixels.
The Neopixel Featherwing is attached to headers on the Feather, but uses pin 6 for control. The ultrasonic range finder is on pin 5 and the piezo buzzer uses pin 10.
I used the following libraries for this project:
- Adafruit GFX Library
- Adafruit NeoMatrix
- Adafruit NeoPixel
