As though symbolizing the remote but essential part it plays in the Allied Nations’ drive for victory, the letter “V” is formed by a machine winding coils for electric transformers made by a Westinghouse plant. The two slanting arms of the “V” serve to support several spools of copper wire, which can be wound onto as many as nine coils at a time under the guidance of one operator. Transformers in which the coils will go are used to “step up” or “step down” the voltage as required by electric power tools in defense industries.
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.
