New Microcontroller, Who Dis?!

This summer, I joined an amazing group of makers in the hills of Kentucky for 4 days of collaboration, celebration, and giving back to our community. One of our group outreach projects was to build a pinewood derby track for a local Cub Scout pack in need. I teamed up with Halbert Walston to design, build, assemble and program this remote controlled drag strip Christmas tree.

This project used the brand new Raspberry Pi Pico W microcontroller and some Neopixel LEDs from Adafruit. Check out the code and template files on GitHub.
