It may be a basic breakfast food, but there’s nothing bland about this toast. Every morning, Adam Perry turns golden bread to 3D art to nourish and entertain his youngest of two daughters, who’s on a restricted diet due to severe food allergies.
Though a feast for eyes far and wide, the edible designs delight his kids most of all. His nine-year-old is now excited to enjoy her morning meals, and her 13-year-old sister gets a kick out of the project, too. Perry reminds us all that it’s perfectly fine to play with your food—in fact, it’s a treat for the whole family.
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.
