For fun, I designed a little USB device, actually it has two USB devices on a small board in the shape of a stick. Two USB capable microcontrollers are on this circuit. One will connect to the Raspberry Pi, and behave like a keyboard and mouse. The other will connect to my laptop. My laptop will run software that captures keystrokes and mouse events. The laptop will tell the microcontroller what to do, so when I press a key on my laptop, the Raspberry Pi thinks the same key is pressed. (and the same with the mouse).
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.
