The Circuit Playground friends have names! Meet Cappy, Ruby, Gus, Billie, Connie, Hans and Mho!
Thank you Adafruit community for helping us with the naming of the Circuit Playground friends. After much thought here are the names we’ve settled on. We’ll be adding more components soon, stay tuned!
Capacitor – Cappy, Cappy E. Lectricfield Red LED – Ruby! Green LED – Gus, New yorker, LED, sounds a bit like Richard Feynman Blue LED – Billie, sings the blues Transistor – Connie, short for “silicon” 555 timer IC – Hans, named after Hans Camenzind Resistor – Mho!
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.
