My nearly year-long project starting with a design concept and finishing with a prototype is almost done. There’s more tweaking to do, but I’m happy to announce this week I’ll be posting several articles on the building of my Solar Outdoor Robot here on Polyideas. I’ll be posting four different articles, each focusing on a different part of the build.
AS SEEN ON SHOW AND TELL! – Each Saturday night at 9:30pm ET is the electronics show and tell on Google+! Keep an eye on Ladyada’s G+ page and drop a comment on the weekly announcement to show your project on the on-air hangout!
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.
