NEW GUIDE: Bring Van Gogh’s Starry Night to life using CRICKIT, CPX, and CircuitPython
This project will guide you through the process of animating and illuminating your own version of Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night using materials you can find around the house, Adafruit’s CRICKIT and Circuit Playground Express, and a dash of CircuitPython. This guide demonstrates how to use the CircuitPython editor Mu, which makes it easy to change and expand upon the project.
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.
