Chrooke's Animator and Awesome Detector

Description

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

It should be possible to build a similar device using other Arduino-compatible dev boards and addressable LED pixels.

Connections

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.

Required libraries

I used the following libraries for this project:

  • Adafruit GFX Library
  • Adafruit NeoMatrix
  • Adafruit NeoPixel
  • Timer
