So you have a nifty display like a bright TFT LCD, Charlieplex LED or NeoPixel matrix powered by MicroPython, but what if you want to draw shapes and graphics on it? Most MicroPython display modules only give you basic pixel drawing commands so it’s difficult to draw graphics yourself pixel by pixel. Luckily there’s a handy new MicroPython graphics module you can use to draw basic shapes and graphics on any pixel-based display! This module shows some of the power of MicroPython–a single module can work with any pixel display because of MicroPython’s dynamic language features. In this guide you’ll learn how to use a MicroPython graphics module to draw basic line, rectangle, circle, and triangle shapes on pixel-based displays like the ILI9341 TFT FeatherWing.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
