Back to the Future Go-Kart with ‘Flight Mode Illusion’ #gokart
Young maker Kim Henriksen is clearly enjoying life!
Now I’ll warn you this video is a bit lengthy, and you’ll have to skip back and forth a lot if you follow along to build your own go-kart. Even if you don’t build identical to Kim’s design, some of the steps are really clever and worth considering for other karts. And of course you are free to add electronic flare to your go-kart as you wish!
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.
