Check out this slick Mother’s Day project from BlipBlip:
We built a paper pixel machine to express our love for our mothers.
It is a portable suitcase containing a modified circuit that allowed us to program a led array displaying text.
Then, we walked around the city shooting our message in different locations.
Love you mom!
I like the way they’ve combined the Mother’s Day message with a hyperkinetic presentation — a sort of sentimental dark futurism.
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.
