This was a school project at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. It was for our Embedded Linux Class with Dr. Yoder. We found a similar project online that did it but with a Teensy. We decided to give it a try ourselves but this time with the PocketBeagle. We made the panel and packaged everything so it was as thin as possible. Right now it is not in a graduation cap but will be when we receive them. It will be displaying a custom sequence we make during graduation.
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.
