Millions of students ride their bikes to classes every day and now you can do it style. Watch Grace assemble and program an Adafruit Circuit playground to create a rear bike light that will not only make you visible but also standout from the crowd.
With her modifications, the colors also change based on the temperature so you’ll get warmer colors in the summer and cooler colors in the fall. With Circuit Playground and the Arduino IDE, Digi-Key can help you accessorize your bike so it truly will be that one in a million.
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.
