How to Turn a Laptop into a Portable Media PC with Integrated Speakers
Great project with beautiful woodwork from diyperspective on Instructables:
One year ago I saw Matthew Perks (my favorite DIY creator) video – youtu.be/CfirQC99xPc how he created something cool from an old laptop. I wished that one day I will be capable of making anything close to it.
Today is the day that I surpassed my all expectations from one year ago.
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.
