This project will guide you through the process of animating and illuminating your own version of Van Gogh's famous Starry Night painting.
This project uses readily available household materials, and also serves as a fun introduction to CircuitPython.
In addition, this project uses:
- Scrap cardboard (~10"x10" square)
- Double sided tape
- Hot glue (optional)
CircuitPython is a programming language based on Python, one of the fastest growing programming languages in the world. It is specifically designed to simplify experimenting and learning to code on low-cost microcontroller boards.
To run CircuitPython we recommend using Mu. If this is your first time using Mu, this guide is a good introduction to get you up and running.
Mu is a simple code editor that works with all Adafruit CircuitPython boards. It's written in Python and works on Windows, MacOS, Linux and Raspberry Pi. The serial console is built right in so you get immediate feedback from your board's serial output!
Once you have Mu installed you're ready to rock with CircuitPython.
Let's get started!
