Particle Snowflake Blends Technology with Holiday Cheers

This holiday season, Particle Industries Inc. unveils the Particle Snowflake, an innovative decoration that combines the holiday spirit with the latest technology. Designed to add a unique twinkle and melody to your holiday decorations, the Particle Snowflake is designed for a tech-savvy individual.

Particle describes its product as follows:

Taking the form of a snowflake, this Particle P2 WiFi module-powered PCBA twinkles its LEDs to provide a seasonal light show. Use it as a tree topper, an ornament, or a standalone decoration with the right USB-C stand.

Elaborating further, Particle adds that the center logo functions as a touch button for interactive experience changes. It also includes a speaker and microphone which makes the development process easy.

You can personalize the snowflake with different light shows and songs, or turn it into a clock. Add more lights by connecting an RGB LED strip. For more fun, set up voice commands using our simple tutorial. Find everything you need on GitHub.

Plug in the snowflake to see 36 RGB LEDs light up. Press the Particle logo to change patterns or hold it for a seasonal tune. Update your device online for more features. Connect to Wi-Fi to customize. Saying “sparkle” activates a new feature!
