This is an ESP32 and Neopixel-powered accent lamp I designed to illustrate some Wifi examples for the ESP32:
The first example shows you how you can make the ESP32 host a color-picker webpage so you can adjust the color/brightness using a web browser.
The other example turns the lamp into sort of a daylight clock that mimics a day/sunset/night/sunrise cycle: it will fetch the current time, and sunrise/sunset data from a couple of web services. Then, during the day it will be a sky blue color, and at night it will be a very dim, dark blue color. At sunset time it will fade through a nice sunset gradient, and it will do the reverse when the sun comes up again.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
