Les P’s Friday Fun: Adafruit Gemma M0 and Neopixels
Adafruit sponsored PyCon 2018 with a limited edition Gemma M0. Les P went right home and started working on some brilliant light-up projects of his own using the Gemma M0 and some NeoPixel rings. He did an amazingly detailed post about it:
So in this blog post we take a look at using Neopixels with the Gemma M0, nothing too fancy just a good grounding from which we can do great things.
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.
