If you didn’t know, Raspberry Pi is very small sized, cheap, low power ARM computer. I won’t write more about this – you can read it on official page. So Wednesday I wanted to go shopping and I remembered my Pi is on the way (I’ve got email informing about it), so I looked into mailbox and almost screamed… 🙂 I gave up on shopping and started hacking.
In the video above – LED diode changes color depending on system load. Green for less than 20%, blue for less than 50%, red for more.
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.
