Dimitry Morozov, a.k.a. ::vtol::, is clearly a busy man. In the last year he’s made an 8-Bit photo gun and silk, a “cryptocurrency-tracking” musical instrument. His latest project, Ra, which comes just weeks after silk, is a sound object and synthesizer that uses a laser that scans irregularities on the surface of a pyrite disc and transforms the data to create sound.
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.
