Joey’s Halloween Costume

Inspiration

Coding

include

define N_LEDS 16

define PIN 1

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

void setup() {
strip.begin();
}

int pos = 0, dir = 1; // Position, direction of “eye”

void loop() {
int j;

// Draw 5 pixels centered on pos. setPixelColor() will clip any
// pixels off the ends of the strip, we don’t need to watch for that.
strip.setPixelColor(pos – 2, 0x100000); // Dark red
strip.setPixelColor(pos – 1, 0x800000); // Medium red
strip.setPixelColor(pos , 0xFF3000); // Center pixel is brightest
strip.setPixelColor(pos + 1, 0x800000); // Medium red
strip.setPixelColor(pos + 2, 0x100000); // Dark red

strip.show();
delay(30);

// Rather than being sneaky and erasing just the tail pixel,
// it’s easier to erase it all and draw a new one next time.
for(j=-2; j<= 2; j++) strip.setPixelColor(pos+j, 0);

// Bounce off ends of strip
pos += dir;
if(pos < 0) { pos = 1; dir = -dir; } else if(pos >= strip.numPixels()) {
pos = strip.numPixels() – 2;
dir = -dir;
}
}

Reflection

I learned a lot through this activity. First, I know how to do a complete costume. During this process, I think my sew skill is improved. Besides, I think coding actually is not very difficult, especially some basic coding. If we know the resource of coding library, it will be very convenient to do it.
