Thank you to everyone who participated in
Adafruit Extra Credit this past August!! We got a ton of great submissions and it was exciting to see what everyone is doing with the Circuit Playground
We have selected a few projects that really highlight this excellent community.
Here are some projects we think exemplify what circuit playground is meant to/can do, with projects suitable from young engineers to the experienced makers.
Facebook user John R shared this project for using the Circuit Playground to draw with color:
Daniel S shared this Tron Hand Scanner on Google Plus:
Discord user Sigafoos shared “Circuit Jouster”:
Elliot P Shared his project using a Circuit Playground as a robot controller on Twitter:
And finally we selected one project to receive special honors

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.
