New #StevenUniverse Project! DIY Pearl Gem Weapon #MakeCode

Learn Guide: Perl’s Gem Weapon

In this project we’re building Pearl’s gem weapon from Steven Universe! We made Pearl’s gem wand so it lights up and makes sound effects when you swing it around. You too can build your own – Get the parts to build this project, links are in the description. To build this project, all you need are some poster boards and art supplies. Use microsoft MakeCode and adafruit’s Circuit playground express and learn how to program. Drag and drop codeblocks to develop interactive LED animations. Download our free templates and print them out for building the parts of the wand.

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.
