Help us name the Circuit Playground friends! We have a few names picked out (555 times is Hans for sure) but we’re looking for more ideas 🙂 These little components are all part of the Circuit Playground, a place anyone can visit and learn about electronics. Here are some of the names we’re considering.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

(Red LED named in honor of Blinky,the red Pac-Man ghost) 🙂
Blue LED: Bluto?
Red LED: Ruby?
Red: Tyfi (like rectify) or Tifi (like Tifani) or Red-it
Blue: Beamer (or Beemer if you want to dance with infringement)
Resistor: Aubrac (WWII resistance leader; has that TRIAC type technical feel to it) or Goldie
Capacitor: Polar or Izzy (polarized)
Capacitor: Steve(Closest thing to static I could think of)
Resistor: Che (as in Che Guevera, or really any other well known resistance leader :P)
LED’s: Rinky, Blinky and Gled
Capacitor: Cap’n Patch
Transistor: Kay Tron
Capacitor : Electra-Cutie
most of those are good
but how about Becky for the transistor
BEC for base emitter and collector
I think a nod to old computing is in fitting for the leds
Capacitor: Puff (we actually named our dog Picofarad and call him Puff for short)
Transistor: Iota (from your post last year about how the transistor got it’s name)
The obvious name for an inductor (if you had one) would be Henry.
I second Hans and Mho ideas, I like those. Also the suggestion for Blinky/Winky/Dinky are good too!
transistor – Nip
Capacitor – Conde’ (old school .. condenser)
Transistor – Sis (short for tran ‘sis’ tor)
Red LED – Rosso (Italian for ‘red’)
Green LED – Verde (Italian for ‘green’)
Blue LED – Sky ( … the sky is ‘blue’)
Resistor – Bandi
