Guide Update: Sensor Plotting Capacitive Touch with Mu and CircuitPython
We’ve been doing tons of sensor data plotting with the plotter function in Mu. Now we’ve added how to plot the data from the capacitive touch pads on the Circuit Playground Express with Circuit Python and Mu! If you’d like a really neat way to test your capacitive touch pads and see the values change on the plotter as you touch them, you can follow along with this guide and get a capacitive touch level plot going!
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.
