Here's another interesting use of the Magic 9 Ball code -- you can create a random microcontroller selector for all those times you just aren't sure which amazing CircuitPython-capable Adafruit board to get from Digi-Key, who are going all-in on CircuitPython!

This will display a randomly selected board and show the product name, image, and Digi-Key product number!

Simply load these images linked below onto the board (you can place the Magic 9 Ball images into a folder you make on the HalloWing and they won't be selected for viewing).







This is just an example we created for our friends at Digi-Key, but we hope it also serves as a leaping off point for you to come up with your own creative uses for the image randomization of the Magic 9 Ball!
