I’ve made some adjustments to my Qualcomm Women in Science and Engineering shirt last weekend.
I’ve added an Adafruit Flora powering a couple of NeoPixels to make the propeller of the lightbulb appear as if it’s spinning. Ive used Adafruit 2-ply conductive thread to sew in the power, ground and input rails. More code modifications forthcoming to power the onboard NeoPixel on the Flora!
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.
