Rocky’s Boots is an electronic construction set. In the program, Rocky, a boot-wearing raccoon, teaches children to build animated logic machines. Users build arbitrary logic circuits and use them to program robots in the context of an adventure game. The object of this game is to score points by making a machine to kick object targets out of a trough. The machines are composed of circuit parts that direct the flow of electricity. They are built by moving the cursor around the screen, picking up parts and hooking them together. The object targets vary in shape and color and the player must connect logic gates in such a matter that only the objects of a desired shape or color are kicked when they pass through sensors.
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.
