“Umbilical digital” project is a kind of farm where special algorithm that runs on arduino board “cares about” digital nurslings – Japanese Tamagotchi toys that became in due time one of the first pet simulators. Viewing condition of every nursling, the system performs all the necessary manipulations to support “life” and “good spirit” of digital animals. Through simulation of pressing the buttons, the system behaves like an ideal careful host, and a pet exists as if it was nursed by a human.
Looking at the behavior of “organisms”, the algorithm constantly learns and modifies itself. Stats of all processes in real time are shown on a small thermal printer that keeps “chronicle” of the farm that lets retrace the history of colony and its evolution.

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.
