NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Pushrod Garage @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
With this new guide in the Learning System, You can build your own model garage with a functioning automatic garage door powered by a Circuit Playground Express, servo motor, and pushrod mechanism created with a paperclip, cardboard, a dowel, and a straw!
You’ll code the Circuit Playground Express using MakeCode so that it can open or close your garage door at the press of a button, and even build a light activation mode that will automatically open the door for you!
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.
