*pew* *pew* Take out TVs with your Circuit Playground!
Pew Pew! Televisions are toast when you build this project, a universal TV zapper made with just your Circuit Playground Express. This guide will not only show you how to make a DIY universal remote, we’ll also show how to grab data using a logic analyzer, parse it with Jupyter notebooks, compress it to fit into our little CircuitPython boards, and take advantage of the Python eval function to dynamically load data into memory.
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.
