NEW PRODUCT – Circuit Playground Snow Globe Kit

Snowglobe

NEW PRODUCT – Circuit Playground Snow Globe Kit


Light up the winter nights this year with an electronic Snow Globe! This kit provides everything you need to make your very own, no soldering required! You can use MakeCode to program various light and sound effects into the Circuit Playground Express. MakeCode uses easy-to-understand drag and drop programming blocks, so even if you’ve never programmed before, you’ll be rockin’ like the Rockettes.

Check out the many electronic snow globe guides we have for you to follow!

The custom plastic ‘snow globe’ container is durable, clear, and round, with a large flat screw-on top and a press-fit rubber stopper. The stopper makes a nice seal, and is also hollow which means you can put (you guessed it…) electronics inside! This makes it perfect for your own electronic-powered snow globe.

The stopper inner diameter is ~60mm diameter and ~13.5mm deep, which means it has tons of room for goodies. We picked this size because it fits a Circuit Playground Express with a 500 mAh lipo battery perfectly.

This kit contains:

4011 kit ORIG 2018 10

To program with MakeCode you’ll need a Mac, Windows, ChromeOS or Linux computer. A standard micro-B USB data-sync cable is required to program it as well. You’ll need water, glitter or some other snow-like materials, glycerine (to slow the water down), something cool to show off inside, and E6000 glue to make the stopper seal permanent. Those items are not included, but you can purchase them at your friendly local art supply, crafting or hardware store.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
