8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. I think it’s funny that we’re transitioning into an age where emphasis needs to be placed on things not being printed. That said, I wish it was printed, since then it would have a chance of being a more easily shared design!

    Hmmm, I wonder if maybe Jason Welsh could be inspired into making an articulated dragon along the lines of his already crazy 38 and 70 articulation-point action figures. 🙂

  2. i thought it was printed. i cant read Russian and relying on google translate but the comment on 24/08/2013 at 22:13 said
    “. Gaallo. ,Thank you!) No, of course not a secret – it is printed, but not on a highly accurate printer, and on the home” addressing Gaallo’s question regarding if it was printed just above. So i assumed it was, but polyurethane was also mentioned in comments. could it be possible that it was prototyped on a 3d printer, then used those printed parts to make molds for resin casting?

  3. Chris Benjamins: exactly that, yes. Prototyped with 3D printing, but there was a LOT of subsequent finishing work. The production dolls (as in the photo) are cast from molds, not directly printed.
