NEW GUIDE: Circuit Playground D6 Dice #AdafruitLearningSystem

NEW GUIDE: Circuit Playground D6 Dice

Dice are another one of those game related items that have been around for a long time. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but the most common is the basic 6 sided dice, otherwise known as the D6.

In this guide, we’ll show how we can simulate a D6 dice on the Circuit Playground using the NeoPixels to represent the various patterns of the dice face. We’ll also use the accelerometer to simulate “rolling the dice” by detecting shaking. And because we can, we’ll add a tap detect feature for quick and easy rolling.

Required Parts

This project uses the sensors already included on the Circuit Playground. The only additional items needed are batteries for power and a holder for the batteries.

See the full guide here!


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.
