Do you have a great idea that needs a screen which requires zero power to maintain an image? Are you looking to add an interesting display to your next project? Want to prototype a low-cost, persistent screen that can be read in direct sunlight? You may have seen E-paper in e-book readers and dynamic store displays for some time now. Because of its complex driving circuitry, it has remained out of reach for hobbyists until now.
This maker came on our show and tell and is doing a lot of good work getting makers access to e-ink, we backed/supported the project and we’re posting here – Check it out!
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.
