Circuit Playground, Adafruit’s multi-faceted experimenter board, may be used in many of the maker projects on the Adafruit Learning System and other tutorials on the Internet. This project extends Circuit Playground into the field of robotics.
With this project, you can make a robot with Circuit Playground that is low cost, easy to build and program. The techniques used are applicable to using continuous servos, sound processing, and robotics techniques.
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.
