Just thought I’d share a spin on the “the Eye of
Newt” project. Instead of a jar, I designed and printed a pipe-like
assembly with flanges. The eye is “captured” in the pipe sight glass. The
project uses most of the parts as Eye of Newt. I used a 2X acrylic desk
magnifier and through-hole mini switch, instead. The eye looks big across a
dimly lit room in this pipe assembly. Thanks to Erin for the project.
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.
