Hacking Chewbacca Masks and Circuit Playground Projects – @JohnEdgarPark’s Talks This Weekend at World #MakerFaire!

John Edgar Park will be giving two talks this weekend at the World Maker Faire in Queens, NYC! He’ll be talking about some recent projects and videos you might have seen on this blog, or perhaps you’ll recognize the project videos if you’re subscribed to the Adafruit YouTube channel.


John will be talking about his hack of the famed Happy Chewbacca Mask, replacing the mask’s “wookie sounds” with any sound file for custom sound effects. The sounds are stored on an Adafruit Audio FX Mini Sound Board which means no microcontroller coding is needed!

This talk will be taking place on Saturday, October 1, from 12:30PM-1:00PM at the Maker to Market Stage in the middle of zone 3, immediately adjacent to the large Maker Pavilion tents.


Head over to the Show & Tell Stage (just to the left of the Rocket Roundabout) on Sunday, October 2, from 12:15PM-12:45PM for his talk, John Park’s Circuit Playground Projects. These will include the Password Vault, Class Scheduler, and PZ-1: Pizza Box DJ Controller, all built with and around the Circuit Playground.

These will be two fun talks among a hundred other talks among hundreds of artist, maker, designer, and engineering projects at World Maker Faire!


8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
