Are you the kind of person who doesn't like taking down the skeletons and spiders until after January? Well, we've got the development board for you. This is electronics at its most spooky! The Adafruit HalloWing is a skull-shaped ATSAMD21 board with a ton of extras built in to make for an adorable wearable, badge, development kit, or the engine for your next cosplay or prop.
Mu is an amazing editor that works with CircuitPython and compatible boards. You can connect to the serial REPL right inside the editor. It also includes a plotter the works with your code to give you a live visual graph of your data! This guide will show you different ways to use the plotter with different sensors. It's time to plot!
Robotics has often been a lot of work. With modern hardware and software, it is now possible to get up and going quickly in a single sit-down, in as little as 15 minutes. Using Adafruit Circuit Playground Express with Crickit, you can actually have a movement + sound project running quickly with a satisfying sense of accomplishment.
You're a human! Right? For now anyway... There's a red pulsing in the distance... NO! A ZOMBIE! You're losing health, but what's this? A white pulsing from around a corner, a healer! You'll stay human for a little longer... We've written up a fun game for you to play with Circuit Playground Express and CircuitPython or MakeCode. Hopefully you'll be a human long enough to check out this guide!
This stylish neo-pixel clock is built with a Feather M0. You can make it talk, play music, play chimes, and play animation patterns. You can also set the time and control options using an infrared remote, Bluefruit Connect app, or touch controls. The guide includes a 3D printed case design where you can create your own custom case out of cardboard, wood or any other material.
GBoard is an alternate keyboard for Android Devices that lets you type using Morse code. This has seen use for people with limited mobility, but it can also be useful for practicing your morse code skills. The goal of this project is to build a simple input device for GBoard that doesn't require soldering or elaborate construction techniques. We'll be using a Circuit Playground Express to build this project. We have a few different versions we'll be demonstrating - from the simplest using the two onboard buttons, to using capacitive touch inputs, to connecting up some alligator clips to big-and-easy-to-press arcade buttons.
Circuit Playground Express has the ability to transmit and receive IR signals. You can use CircuitPython to send and receive messages using IR. This guide covers the basics of Circuit Playground Express IR and shows you how to use CircuitPython to communicate between two Circuit Playground Expresses!
