Last summer I created some resources to use with Micro:bit/s for CPC and over the next few months and I will try and share the best bits with the kind permission of CPC.
This one uses Micropython and a neopixel again. The neopixel is from this kit:
The picture below shows how the Micro:bit is set up, It has 7 neo-pixel lights sequentially connected with clips. P.s. and Lots of tape to hold it all down!
Micro:bit code originally from: here
Repeatedly displays random colours onto the LED strip.
This example requires a strip of 7 Neopixels (WS2812) connected to pin0.
from microbit import *
from random import randint
# Setup the Neopixel strip on pin0 with a length of 7 neo pixels
np = neopixel.NeoPixel(pin0, 7)
#Iterate over each LED in the strip
for pixel_id in range(0, len(np)):
red = randint(0, 60)
green = randint(0, 60)
blue = randint(0, 60)
# Assign the current LED a random red, green and blue value between 0 and 60
np[pixel_id] = (red, green, blue)
# Display the current pixel data on the Neopixel strip
Have a go :)
