LEARN: Make a Glowing Seashell Necklace with Circuit Playground
Use Circuit Playground to make a classy seashell necklace that goes with every outfit. Change colors and brightness on the fly with a click of Circuit Playground’s onboard buttons. We even included a sound reactive mode to invoke Ariel’s necklace from the Little Mermaid. This is an easy project that kids and grown-ups of all ages will adore.
It can be hard to find electronics projects that are good intro projects for kids. This is a great one — there is just a little bit of soldering involved, or you can make this necklace with no soldering at all if you prefer. And the finished necklace is truly stunning, a cut above most intro-to-electronics projects. I’ve been wearing mine everywhere and it’s definitely turning heads!
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.
