This project combines very basic materials to create an entrancing hand that can be "programmed" to move its fingers in different sequences.
This project is based around the Circuit Playground Express. This board is packed with sensors and is easy to program using the block-based code editor MakeCode.
If you'd like to power your project without connecting a USB cable to your computer either of these battery options work well to untether your device.
In addition to the electronics, for this project you will need:
- A known good A to micro-B USB cable
- Scrap corrugated cardboard
- Scissors and/or box cutter
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- A bamboo skewer
