Arduino powers this Matrix-themed mortarboard

Arduino TeamJune 6th, 2016

With graduation season upon us, Makers are coming up with creative ways to decorate their mortarboards. One thing is for certain, Fahad Mirza will stand out in the crowd of his classmates with a movie-themed cap that would even impress Keanu Reeves himself. Inspired by The Matrix, the headpiece is equipped with an Arduino Pro Mini, an Adafruit NeoPixel ring for its green LED effects, and a 3.7V lithium-ion battery for power. The electronics are all hidden inside the cap which aptly reads, “Everything that has a beginning has an end.”

Boards:Pro Mini

    Love the mortarboard. I wish I’d done something interesting with mine.
    I did, however, create a Matrix themed clock that is Arduino based. Please check it out. Maybe you could make use of some of the code I wrote for it.
