First up, here’s our Drawdio Instructable! Next up – There’s a new Drawdio group on Instructables and your hack/mod/project could end up in a museum! Just add your Drawdio Instructable to the group, all submissions that have some original form factor (even superficial modifications count as original) will be included in the next Drawdio video and one entry will be chosen to be displayed in the Drawdio exhibit this Summer from July 25th to September 25th at “Freeze!–2009 International MedTech Art Show” at the Taiwan National Museum of Fine Arts. Another way to “enter” is to just come in person at Maker Faire and show Jay Silver your remix, which he will video tape on the spot. Jay (Drawdio inventor) will be at booth number “Expo 134” (near the Exploratorium) at Maker Faire. And lastly, if you’re thinking about a Drawdio kit – here ya go!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
