Display Binary Number Using LED Ring @msmakecode @teachmecs

Binary LED Example

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.

You need to enter the project URL https://github.com/teachmecs/BinaryLEDs, hit return and then select the Binary LEDs package.

You can see more about the project on GitHub.

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.
