Analog Binary Counter Visually Demonstrates 0 to 63 (in Base-10) (Video)
No it doesn’t explain how binary operates (but we have a blog for that too) or what is meant by base 10 (read our Learn Guide) or how to display binary on a Circuit Playground’s LEDs (we got you covered), or perhaps most importantly how to display binary time on a wristwatch (read more here & here & here & here & here!) — but this very analog counter does visually (& brilliantly) demonstrate how binary proceeds from 0 to 63. Watch:

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.
