Recently CPC had a great time at Makerfaire UK and we took along a few games for the public to play. One of those games was a clone of the popular 80s game SIMON.
For those a little too young to remember. SIMON was a memory game that challenged the player to remember a sequence of lights that were underneath four coloured buttons around the perimeter of the game. The game increased in difficulty and speed as you progressed through the levels, before finally beating you…that part was inevitable.
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.
