I’m delighted to announce my latest project – a Chinese Dragon Puppet with Motion-Reactive Flame Effect tutorial, now available on the Adafruit Learning System. This tutorial is perfect for newbies to programming and building stuff with LEDs. It’s a pretty simple project with just a little soldering, and I’ve done a thorough walkthrough of how to build your motion-reactive code and LED animations using Microsoft MakeCode, a drag-and-drop code editor.
This tutorial will teach you how to create a motion-reactive flame effect that will bring your dragon puppet to life. With step-by-step instructions, wiring diagrams, and a video demonstration, even beginners can follow along and create an impressive LED effect.
But the fun doesn’t stop with just a dragon puppet! Once you’ve mastered the techniques in this tutorial, you’ll be able to create all kinds of motion-reactive LED effects to enhance your projects.
