When Erin St. Blaine listened to the audiobook versions of The Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson she decided she needed to make a Soulcaster inspired by the series. The Soulcaster is a type of fabrial (a wearable as far as I can tell) that allows anyone to soulcast. Erin pulled hers together from leather, brass, glass, Neopixels, Gemma, and an Arduino Micro Controller. The finished soulcaster has three glowing gemstone spheres.
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.
