As Seen on Show & Tell: Arduino Sign Language Hand!
Thanks so much to Carson Kaucher for joining us on Show and & Tell and for following up with us afterwards to share this great video of his project. Carson writes:
I really love what your company has done, and I would never have made this project if I hadn’t heard of you guys. You were the ones that taught me about the Arduino, and I bought my first microcontroller from you (the Flora) – Carson
Here’s a project description as well:
This is a sign language hand built from an Arduino and a toy!
I made this for my STEM club and worked really hard on it. Everyone else was using an ez-robot and were having a really hard time, but I decided to use an Arduino, and with a lot of hard work and time, It worked!
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.
