The MiniKBD is an introductory level project that lets you build a small USB mechanical keyboard using the Adafruit Trinket M0 board (not included) and program custom funtionality with CircuitPython.
It’s programmable with CircuitPython!
Adafruit’s Trinket M0 is an amazing little device, I think there’s no easier way for someone with a little bit of programming experience to get started making their own hardware. Once the MiniKBD is built it’s fully programmable with CircuitPython, allowing you to easily customize its functionality. Compared to the Arduino, there’s no need for a special IDE other than what you’re already comfortable programming in. The project was designed for use in an introductory electronics workshop, and it’s excellent for someone with a little bit of experience with the Python programming language who wants to get started with hardware.
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.
