Make a set of roaring 20s costume spats with this new tutorial from Erin St Blaine. This is a fairly easy project that requires some light soldering and sewing.
Adorn your gams with a Gemma M0 and a Hotsy-Totsy strand of blinkers. The fellas will turn their heads as you strut by like a daisy in the Cat’s Pajamas. You’ll need a soldering iron, a sewing machine and a bit of pizazz. Dizzy them up with some drag-and-drop coding over at MakeCode, and you’ll soon be lousy with lookers.
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.
