Introduction: Led Race
Led Race using a Raspberry PI and Makey Makey
- Raspberry Pi
- Led Strip WS2813
- Alligator clips
- Makey Makey
- Tin foil
Step 1: Raspberry Pi
The project is really simple. I’m using the WS2813 led strip and using the API that I found on the internet.
Python library wrapping for the rpi-ws281x library
You can check my GitHub to see the full code.
It’s basically a Python code that runs on the Raspberry Pi that controls the Led Strip and the Makey Makey that I used to simulate one keyboard. Every click I move the led 3 positions forward.
The makey makey part is just one tin foil and play-doh.
I used the GPIO 10 (pin 19) and 18 (pin 12) for LED_PIN and LED_DMA and GPIO 9 (pin 6) for Ground.
