Use the CRICKIT board with your Circuit Playground Express to control a cardboard animatroinc hand. Four servo motors pull the fingers into position using cable drive systems made from cord and straw guides. Program it all with CircuitPython to actuate as you press the capacitive touch controllers. You'll also learn to use the CRICKIT as an audio-animatronic controller with pre-programmed sounds and motions, such as counting in binary!
This project uses the Feather M0 Express, the Adalogger Featherwing and the AM2320 Temperature and Humidity sensor to gather data from the sensor and save it to the SD card on the Adalogger. You'll learn how to record data, and then take that data, import it into a spreadsheet and turn it into an awesome graph!
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!
You've already gotten started with CircuitPython. What's next? CircuitPython Essentials! This guide provides examples all of the core modules and some of the common libraries found in CircuitPython and how they're used. You'll be able to use any board designed for CircuitPython and learn about the different concepts included in the language. It's time to take the next step!
This guide will show you how to use CircuitPython and your Circuit Playground Express to make an interactive lamp, by using movement to change color settings and modes, or changing it up from across the room with an IR remote. You'll learn how to use different code concepts to make this happen. Lamp it up and have fun!
Breathe easy with the SGP30 Multi-Pixel Gas Sensor, a fully integrated MOX gas sensor. This is a very fine air quality sensor from the sensor experts at Sensirion, with I2C interfacing and fully calibrated output signals with a typical accuracy of 15% within measured values. The SGP combines multiple metal-oxide sensing elements on one chip to provide more detailed air quality signals.
Tired of reaching for your phone when you need new 2FA tokens? (Or maybe you don't have a phone!) In this guide you will build a simple device generates TOTP's, using CircuitPython - my favorite programming language! It uses a Feather ESP8266 which has WiFi so it can connect to NTP to get the current time on startup, and a Feather OLED to display text nice and clearly.
