One of the CLUE's many features is BLE connectivity, which opens up possibilities for utilizing wireless communication. In this project, you'll use the PyLeap app to wirelessly load the project code onto your CLUE. Then, you'll connect to the CLUE with the Adafruit Bluefruit Connect app to change the colors and animations of a strip of NeoPixels over BLE.

Original Project

This project was originally created by Erin St. Blaine and Kattni Rambor with CircuitPython and a Circuit Playground Bluefruit. The code has been adapted for the CLUE to make use of the CLUE's screen to display animation and RGB color information. You can check out the original Learn Guide for more information on how the code works.
