How fantastic is this Circuit Playground Express Arc Reactor from stevenquinn in the Adafruit Forums?!
I took the CPX and with some 3D printing turned it into a Mark I arc reactor from Iron Man. MakeCode was used to add some simple NeoPixel fading, and a managed to route the usb cable so it kind of looks like a real power cord. I may or may not glue this last bit together but for now it’s taped in for easy access to the CPX.
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.
