One of the great and features of the Circuit Playground Express is the addition of an infrared transmitter and receiver. In this tutorial you will learn how to receive and decode IR signals from a remote control such as those used for TV, DVD, cable boxes and how to transmit IR signals making your Circuit Playground Express an IR remote itself.
A physical disability can make it impossible to operate a touchscreen device such as an iPhone or iPad. Commercially available switch control devices can cost several hundred dollars but with the power of Adafruit Bluefruit BLE devices you can build an interface for a fraction of that cost. We show you how in this tutorial.
Once upon a time a makers preferred enclosure for an electronic project was the famous Altoids Mint or Gum tin box.

Infrared LEDs and receivers can be a great way to control a robot will create a home automation system but you need a library to simplify the coding process. In this tutorial we will give a brief explanation of how IR remotes work and show you how to use the IRLib library which makes it easy to send, receive, and decode IR signals.
