If you are graduating or you know someone graduating, help friends and family find the graduate in a crowd by making a unique graduation hat! This “Instructable” guides you through the process to create a hat that will make you stand out in a crowd of boring graduation hats. This tutorial uses a chipKIT uC32 and WS2812 LED (neopixel) strips!
Have fun! And congratulations to all the graduates!
If you have ever wondered why some example sketches “know” what PIN_LED1 means, then you’ll be glad to know that it’s not magic. PIN_LED1 is an example of a shortcut in the board definition file, a file for each board that contains detailed information about the pins on each board. Check out Jay’s Instructable for how to find and use the board definition files on Mac OS X and Windows.
