This is total zombie apocalypse stuff. Let’s say the world’s ending, there’s no more electricity and you need a knife. But all you’ve got are a roll of aluminum foil, a source of open flame and some unpowered hand tools. What do you do?
Admittedly, not all of you are going to have the sharpening media lying around, unless you’re knife nuts or hand tool woodworkers. But the fact that this is possible at all beggars belief.
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.
