I wanted to share a mini project that could have the headline “Adafruit inside”… It turns out that all the components of this project come from Adafruit, as well as the inspiration from the excellent tutorials available for each product!
This is a fun alarm clock for a 9 year old. It plays Minecraft songs for wakeup. It can also be used as a real jukebox, by moving forwards and backwards though the list of songs.
More on the project (with complete BOM;-) on Github.
Have a look inside at Flickr.

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.
