Guide Update: John Park’s Light Paintbrush with Circuit Playground Express MakeCode @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Here’s an exciting update to this long exposure photography light paintbrush project: Now, you can build it with the new Circuit Playground Express, and program it visually with Microsoft’s MakeCode visual programing app!
Paint with light using the Circuit Playground Light Paintbrush. Tilt the brush to change colors using the on-board accelerometer. This newly updated guide will get you started!
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.
