The Adafruit Circuit Playground Express board has lately become my go-to board for prototyping really quickly. Using CircuitPython and the Mu Editor, I can adjust code to make things work as I go along.
The Circuit Playground Express board is also capable of playing small sound clips. I found a howling wolf .wav file I liked. There was not enough room on the board’s memory to load the sound file. I used Audacity to downsample the sound clip to a low 16khz.
Version 2 features being considered are a Full moon detector and water bottle holder.
Are you building projects with Circuit Playground Express and/or AdaBox 008? Let us know in the comments!
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.
