Finally got around to adding together some video clips I took. I had a lot of people asking about what it does and how, so here is a little walk through.

Photos here!

This is exactly what we made the Waveshield for. And this is exactly vodka and cranberry juice was made for.


8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. I don’t know, I think using an arduino is coping our from the whole steam-punk thing. Truly if you want to go steam punk, all you get to use is Steam & Tubing. But, I guess I can see caving in an usuing an arduino. Beatiful job!

  2. What an amazing job, the sound effects really take it to the next level!

  3. VERY EXCELLANT!

  4. This is just too cool for words. Thanks for the video.

  5. awsume….everything

  6. This is the most spectacular thing ever. Seriously, it sets the bar for steampunk gadgets.

  7. it sounds like a toilet flushing when it drives, i sure hope you can turn the sounds off and on when wanting it.
