I purchased this audio decoder https://www.adafruit.com/products/2341, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and one of your Perma-Proto half-sized breadboards. I wanted to make a simple radio prop that played static all the time, but interrupt it and play certain radio broadcasts when triggered. This was my first real electronics project, so I was worried I would short it out or touch two wires the wrong way and connect something wrong and ruin the board.
But after a lot of trial and error, it turned out great and works perfectly. I plugged in the speakers and heard static, and when I flipped the switch and heard the radio broadcast I cannot tell how excited I was that it worked, and felt compelled to write this. Thank you so much for making my first project a memorable experience.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
