Exploring Arduino Projects on the Adafruit Support Forums!
For a couple of weeks now, maker “bob500000” has been developing and tuning a project with the help of the Adafruit Technical Support engineers over at the Adafruit Forums — and now the project appears to be up and running, with a posted image called “Complete!” Check out the long journey and what we can all learn about how to tackle these sort of challenges. (Thanks, Mike, Rick and Bill for the detailed responses to help all of us, your colleagues included!)
Here’s where it all started back in mid April:
Is it possible to link 4 shift registers via one arduino board, I am either looking at using just 4 pins on the board, I have all the code that I want to run, just the linking of the shift registers.
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.
