This collaboration with BubbleSort Zines! is a kit that will help you connect a toy bird (or any animal you want, really) to your Twitter app using an Arduino, so you’ll hear a LITERAL tweet IRL whenever you get mentions! It’s the Literal Twitter Bot Kit — a great way to learn about embedded programming and hardware hacking.
Bring your tweets to life using your favorite stuffed toy, Beanie Baby, Circuit Playground plushie, or even a taxidermy bird for the Twitter originalists out 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, 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.
