Cynthia Ouellette reached out to us about this project she completed with her daughter: “My daughter and I wrapped our scooters in EL Wire. It was very easy! She used a bit of strapping tape on hers and I used 1 or 2 cable ties on mine. The controls/inverters are up by the handles and so are easy to switch modes.”
We used EL wire from Adafruit to attach to our scooters. We’ll be able to roam around Roger’s Campground in style during PorcFest 2014.
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.
