New Project! Mini Mac SE with HalloWing #3DPrinting #CircuitPython
Build a mini mac with HalloWing that displays boot screen actually plays startup chimes! It uses the Adafruit HalloWing M0 Express and runs Circuit Python. The capacitive touch pads cycling through images and sounds stored on device. Circuit Python makes it easy to display images on TFT displays. The HalloWing PCB snap fits onto the face plate without any screws. A mini speaker plugs into the audio port on the back. Press fit the speaker into the back door and close it shut with the built-in latch. You can power the HalloWing over USB or recharge a lipo battery to make it portable.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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.
