#CircuitPython and Hacking the Bearables Badge

bearables

Adafruit loves the Pimoroni Bearables Bear Kit – an affordable, simple, fun kit demonstrating conductive thread and the wearables concept.

Instructables user  has tapped into the fox model of the badge. Adafruit microcontroller boards are easily connected to this badge as they can speak the i2c protocol over their data pins. The Adafruit M0/M4 series have the advantage over other boards because they support a subset of Python (CircuitPython) which makes programming more accessible to a wider audience than other boards.

This is a simple example using CircuitPython on a Gemma M0 board to control the LEDs and read the value from the badge’s sensor pins.

Congratulations on using Adafruit products and CircuitPython to extend other electronics – love it!

You can catch the entire project with pictures and code on Instructables!

Have you used CircuitPython to easily hack something? Let us know in the comments!


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.
