We starting stocking the Colorforms Brush with Genius last week – half-theramin/half-paintbrush. When painting, the conductivity of the watercolors changes the sound pitch that comes out of the little speaker in the brush.
Can be used on most surfaces with just water—no paints required!
Jay Silver’s design (photos) is used in this product, very cool! The the pink and purple brush wasn’t Jay’s original design, but University games’ take on his design. Very cool to see a brand/company like Colorform working with makers like Jay!
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.
