From the planning stages of Circuit Playground we’ve had a lot of features we’ve been really looking forward to – things like a kid’s game module “angry circuits!” 🙂 to amazing new calcs like Op Amp Calculators. The Op Amp calcs just made it in with today’s release *and* so did “Show and Tell”. Show-and-tell is an extension of our weekly live video show and tell on Google+ Hangouts live (tons of makers, 31 weeks & 12+ hours of show and tells!). The iPhone/iPad can take photos so we figured it would be a great way for makers to share their photos of their projects. Just load up Circuit Playground, hit the show and tell menu item and send off a photo of your project from the camera or your stored photos. That’s it! Our team will check it out and post to our site. We’ll eventually add video and other features, please try this out – we’ll think you’ll really like it!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell with Google Hangouts On-Air is every Wednesday at 7:30pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
