MakeS it Blink: January Arduino Workshop


  • Design Lab

    @kile Late March is great! - if you pick a date we can get an ad up asap and start sharing it. Hungry for shareable content and 101’s for the facebook, which is seeing great activity and exposure.

    Thanks for doing this - it helps the Space on multiple levels!

    “Simpler”


    #include <Adafruit_NeoPixel.h>

    // What is the data pin connected to your lights?
    #define PIN A5

    // How many NeoPixels are attached to the Arduino?
    #define NUMPIXELS 14

    Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(NUMPIXELS, PIN, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ800);

    void setup() {

    for(int i=2;i<NUMPIXELS;i++)
    strip.begin(); // This initializes the NeoPixel library.
    strip.show(); // This sets all pixes to off
    }

    void loop() {

    strip.setPixelColor( 4, 1, 1, 1); // (pixel#,rValue,gValue,bValue)
    strip.setPixelColor( 13, 255, 255, 255);
    strip.show();
    }



  • I want to thank everyone for coming out.



  • Ok - that was a lot of fun! Can’t wait until the next class on Adruino class - maybe that stepper motor class againÉ

    Yes, thanks to everyone who attended, I feel like it went well.

    If anyone has any questions, or suggestions on how we could make the next round work better, I would be happy to hear them, so please email me!

    I’ll try to get my notes/instructions sent out in a summary document this week. Thanks again!
