‘Amigurumi Electronics Components’ are Exactly That – Free Patterns Provided #ArtTuesday
Somehow I missed this when it was posted a couple months back over at Make: Projects – they’re great, and for all you crochet-makers out there there’s still plenty of time to make these in time for Xmas!
I designed these myself after feeling the need to merge electronics with the textile arts. I’ve rendered the two most common electronics parts–the LED and the resistor–into an extra cute and soft form.
If you know how to crochet, make your own amigurumi electronics components using the patterns for free below!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
