Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern 9/17/2014 – LIVE 2pm ET
Join Becky Stern and friends every week as we delve into the wonderful world of wearables, live on YouTube. We’ll answer your questions, announce a discount code for the Adafruit store, and explore wearable components, techniques, special materials, tools, and projects you can build at home! Ask your wearables questions in the comments, and if your question is featured on a future episode, you’ll be entered to win the show giveaway!
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Hello! I’m thinking of building the PiGRRL, and was wondering if it’s possible to have multiple emulators on the pi at once (such as NES, and Gameboy Advance). Also, is there a way to configure the input to accept two buttons being pressed at once to equal a press of L and R, in a GBA emulator? Thanks!
Becky thanks for answering my question! You gave me a lot to work on. I plan to give the donkey to my daughter, but I expect that my 5 year old granddaughter will do most of the playing. I made my granddaughter the candle flicker hair bow (she loved it), and she loves the Circuit Playground videos.
I’ll let you know how this works out.
