This is a custom AdaFruit Neopixel Jewel Ring (7 LEDs) housing for a small DIY electronics project as electric light in a lantern for Kindergarten. A bare-bone ATTiny45 microcontroller determines the acceleration of the lantern and calculates the hue and brightness of the LEDs according to the direction of swinging.
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!
