So now do you see what I mean? Just plug the keychain into your USB port and watch the light at the top of the plant’s mouth light up.
It doesn’t really have any real use, per se. It’s more like one of those decorative things that you can carry around (and plug in) and have people come up to you and say, “Whoa, that is so cool!”
At least I think so. You can get your hands on one of these at Boardaments’ shop on Etsy for $9.99. Unfortunately, Boardaments‘ is all sold out of these but they do have some Piranha Plant USB earrings and necklaces in stock.
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.
