I wasn’t exactly sure where to send this, but I still felt it needed to be sent. My senior design team and I have been working around the clock since the beginning of January. We designed and built from scratch a semi-autonomous card dealing robot. By the end of the semester, we had a fully-functional prototype capable of nearly all the physical actions and game management abilities of a human card dealer. I’m writing to thank all of you at Adafruit for your invaluable tutorials and terrific products. No one on the team had used Arduino before, and only a few of us had much coding experience. We would not have been able to accomplish what we did without those! Additionally, the vast majority of our electronic hardware came from you (V2 motorshields, LCD screen and backpack, buttons galore). Besides being just simply terrific products, the tutorials on how to use them were absolutely invaluable to us. Speaking personally, I know I will remain a loyal supporter and patron of your company, and I’m positive my team mates will too. Here is a link to a video we threw together to capture our work over the past months and a demonstration of our prototype (https://youtu.be/zfQ_hifbcZw). Thanks again!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
