So for my first project I aspired to create a piece of art for a local art show about interactivity. The Tickle Brain runs off a Feather and a Capacitive Sense module interfaced with a hacked laugh machine. You tickle it in different spots and it laughs. The ‘Brain’ is a jello mold with copper tape on the inside connected to the Capacitive module. Lots o fun!
The project will be part of an interactive art show at the Transylvania Arts Council show.
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.
