Awww, You make me blush. Wouldn’t it be cool to animate your Adafruit Circuit Playground electronic component plushie? I have Ruby the Red LED plushie. I wanted it to light up and have it respond to sound. Here is an easy mod to get that done. Sorry, no lasers this time.
Probably wouldn’t really be considered old-school soft circuits but probably more of a hybrid, electronics in a softshell case. I still have a bobbin of conductive thread I need to do something with. Note that this was a first attempt in trying to do a mod with stuff I had on hand but I will offer suggestions on what you should do to get a more satisfactory result.
Ruby’s partner in crime Mho the Resistor plushie has been modded as an analog resistor value decoder.
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.
