I recently came across a couple of ideas on Raspberry Pi forums that made me think ‘wow, that’s so crazy it might just work!’
These are disk management commands that Linux allows, but probably shouldn’t. Even Linux power users go pale (well, even paler) at the thought of trying them on their precious desktop PCs. On SD-card systems like the Beaglebone, Beagleboard and Raspberry Pi, though, they’re considerably less scary, and they really do work.
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.
