Add motion triggered sound and light effects to any prop with Circuit Playground. Here’s a way to quickly and easily add exciting, colorful lighting effects and sounds to your props. Using the accelerometer, speaker, and NeoPixel LEDs built into the Circuit Playground, you can have sounds and lights for idle animations, along with two different effects triggered by waving and striking your foam sword, cosplay blaster, magic wand, and more.
You can also build a 3D printed magic wand by downloading and printing the included files and following the steps in this guide.
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.
