Oh noes! An 11th-hour invite to a Halloween function and you don’t have a costume ready! Or maybe you want something discreet but fun when the work dress code doesn’t permit a full werewolf getup.
HalloWing to the rescue! Our spooky little development board, plus a few extra tidbits from Adabox 009 (or your parts collection) can quickly make an eye-catching accessory that no good host would turn you away for being under-dressed.
This guide shows how to make some easily-customized touch- and motion-reactive sound badges, and also has links to a few prior Adafruit projects that are easily adapted to our new HalloWing development board.
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.
