Overview

Ah, the classic snow globe. That clear orb full of mystery liquid, some sort of flake material, and typically a diorama depicting some scene. Shake it up and watch the snow fall.

In this guide we'll show you how to use a Circuit Playground Bluefruit along with a TFT Gizmo to create a digital version of a snow globe. We'll display customizable snow globe goodness on the TFT. You'll be able to set a custom background, create custom snow flakes, and of course shake to clear the snow globe and start it all over.

All coded in CircuitPython.

Let's get started.

Due to memory constraints, this project will only run on the Circuit Playground Bluefruit.
