A big part of Intel’s pitch at CES was that its signature x86 processors could scale from their home turf of PCs all the way down to the smallest of devices.
“Wearables is wide open,” Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in an interview ahead of his appearance at the Vegas consumer electronics show. “What you will see at CES is that we are actually going to bring some very innovative wearables to the show that are developed and manufactured here.”
And while Intel designed all of the products it showed off on stage, it turns out not all of them used Intel’s x86 chip architecture. At least one, a tech demonstration of a smart watch, featured a design with a core based on processor technology from ARM Holdings. (Intel does have a license to manufacture ARM processors, should it choose to.)
As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email email@example.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.
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.
