Using GPIO Marshmallows and Jelly Babies with Your Rapberry Pi @Raspberry_pi #piday #raspberrypi
Amy over at welsharasppi detailed her journey of attempting to use both marshmallows and jelly babies as buttons with her raspberry pi:
Attempt 1: Using Marshmallow as a Button
So 9:30 at night may not have been the best time to start fiddling with my Raspberry Pi, and especially as I decided to have a go at making a marshmallow become a button but throwing caution to the wind I pressed on. After ransacking the house for marshmallows and a paper clip I was ready to start, I think it might be worthwhile to use bigger marshmallows next time as the little ones squashed too easily. See photos for ‘used’ marshmallows – there were only so many that I could eat before feeling ill.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
