NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Mystery Box: The Nautical Crate Magnetic Lockbox @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
This new guide in the Learning System is a mysterious mystery… It’s the Mystery Box: The Nautical Crate. Follow it to build your own magnetically operated mysterious lock box for an escape room, scavenger hunt, magic trick, or bridal shower. ?
This simple-yet-effective method of building a mystery box uses only a solenoid, a reed switch, and batteries to create a locked box that can be opened using a carefully positioned magnetic key, hidden inside an object.
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.
