Display Binary Number Using LED Ring @msmakecode @teachmecs
A neat project from Rosemary Bianchi (Twitter @teachmecs) uses Microsoft MakeCode and the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express learning board. Her code displays a binary value of a number between 0 and 1023 using the 10 LEDs in the LED Ring enabling the Circuit Playground to display large numbers precisely. If the decimal number is not within range, it will blink red instead of showing the binary number.
Rather than just a program, this is a MakeCode extension. Create a new project in Adafruit MakeCode and add this extension via Extensions in the Advanced menu.
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.
