Roses are red,
violets are blue,
this flower changes color,
to show its love for you!
Give your valentine a truly special gift with the cyber flower digital valentine project! This is a beautiful artificial flower that glows different colors using a Gemma M0 and its built-in DotStar LED. If you pick up the cyber flower it detects your touch and animates a glowing heart beat to show its love. This flower will never die–as long as its batteries are charged.
The cyber flower is a great demonstration of CircuitPython code. CircuitPython is a version MicroPython and the Python programming language which can run on boards like the Gemma M0. With simple Python code the cyber flower animates its DotStar LED. You can even modify the code with ease and no need to install software or complex tools.
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.
