We can make a badge that is useful during the conference — that has USB disk storage where you can put conference materials, slides of all talks, etc. It can display the schedule, and maybe even have reminders for the talks you wanted to see. It can have some simple games for the boring talks, but also perhaps some social games, to make you talk to other people. But most importantly of all, it can be super-easy to program, without having to install anything on your computer or learn some esoteric language — by simply copying Python files on it. And finally, when you get home from the conference, you can incorporate it into other projects.
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.
