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.

Do you have a source of conductive bungee cords?
Becky/Phil, this might not technically fall in the “wearable” category, but I believe you are the right folks for this question.
How can I make some blinky leds droolproof 🙂 My 5 month old loves lights, specially blinky leds and he also loves to put everything in his mouth. I am hoping to combine these two and pull off a blinky teether project. Do you think I can do this with some food grade silicone tubing, neo pixel strip and a trinket, maybe throw in some sugru for good measure. Or should I stay away from mixing small drooling babies and electronics.
Bonus question 🙂 Is there a way i can mask the infrared leds on the baby monitor camera? Someway that the light is still usable but the little one doesn’t get distracted by cool leds when he should be trying to sleep.
I have just finished my first wearable the ampli-tie. But I noticed that I have created a bunch of small pieces of the stainless steel thread. Is there any use for pieces under ~2 inch?
