I stumbled upon this fun video by Roberto Marquez where he demonstrates an extension of Mike Barela’s Circuit Playground Kaleidoscope project code ported to the Circuit Playground Yo-Yo – which itself has been further amp’d up here on the Adafruit Learn System too! Now users have a few options to choose between with regards to both design and interaction – awesome!
The modified code for Marquez’s motion-activated sound yo-yo can be found here on GitHub.
And here’s the yo-yo with Circuit Playground as modified by Noe & Pedro Ruiz:

Circuit Playground – Developer Edition: Circuit Playground features an ATmega32u4 processor, just like our popular Flora. The board’s also round and has alligator-clip pads around it so you don’t have to solder or sew to make it work. You can power it from USB, a AAA battery pack, or with a Lipoly battery (for advanced users). Just program your code into the board then take it on the go! Read more.
