NEW GUIDE: Pop-Up House using CRICKIT & Circuit Playground Express #Adafruit #CRICKIT #MakeRobotFriend
This guide demonstrates how to build a pop-up house using materials you can find around the home. The project uses an Adafruit CRICKIT for Circuit Playground Express programmed in MakeCode to make the house fold flat when you blow on it, seeming to disappear before popping right back up!
Along the way you learn how to use AAdafruit CRICKIT– A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit, along with basic programming skills in MakeCode.
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.
