In this project we are going to see how to power littleBits using a LiPo (Lithium Polymer) battery and Solar Panels.
To get started you will require the following items:
Adafruit PowerBoost 1000 Charger
Chocolate Wheel Of Fortune
This machine is a fun way to have chocolate or simply play with your friends and family just by pressing a button! It uses a motor to spin a wheel which points to what chocolate you get. We've included music and blank spaces to make it more interesting.
Atari punk console Bit
Make an atari punk console module for the synth kit
This is a basic module for the synth kit, perfect for those who are begining to prototype their own modules (like me) using the hardware developing kit.
The APC circuit is a very popular design, it is often build as a self contained sound device...
Um... It's a tilt bit:) it basically has a tilt switch to activate your next module!
Fire Control - Remote controlling your fireplace
This is an easy way to control your pellet stove remotely and scheduling it, so your home is always warm at the right time.
It's using the Switch Bit to connect to the pellet stove. That way I can set it up to turn on every morning before I get out of bed and turn off again...
SwitchBit - A safe connection to the world
This bit provides a safe and simple connection to the world. Littlebits is based on 5V, but for many real world applications you need to interface real voltages from real devices. This bit is simple to make and provides a safe connection to these devices.
It basically does the same job as a relay...
