NEW GUIDE: Soil Moisture Sensor with @Adafruit Circuit Playground Express and Microsoft MakeCode @MSMakeCode
These days, we all get busy and soon a week (or month) has gone by. Then we remember: water the plants! Run over to the plants and the soil is like a desert and we apologize to the poor plant.
This situation can be averted through a simple project using the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express. The amount of moisture in the soil can be measured by the board and indicators used to show if the plant needs watering. The project uses Microsoft MakeCode to monitor it all.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
