Hi! I don’t know if you folks read replies of this nature on average to this address, but I just want to say I love your company and watched a bunch of your videos. I’m just a spud with electronics and my skills all revolve around multimedia production, but I think you have one of the best websites around for getting into electronics and working with microcontrollers.
Seriously, your tutorials are great and really got me into working with arduino and basic LED stuff which has been a ton of fun! Over the last year or so, I spent a lot of time making some sculptures combining polymer clay and some components I got from you fine folks with a few arduino units I also got from you too. Basically they are just fancy one of a kind mood lights right now, lol. Unfortunately I admit I had to use some overpriced parts from radioshack as well since that is all we have here in Chicago in my local area, wish you had a Chicago operation! I’d love to hear what you all think of this video and the sculptures with electronics I put together if you have the time of course. 🙂
Thanks for being YOU! Cheers!
A fan in Chicago,
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.
