The Safe and Sound wristband is supposed to promote the idea that sensory-friendly environments for people with varying sensitivities to light, sound, smells, and other things should be supported. This device focuses on sound-sensitivity for those with autism. The wristband collects analog data provided by spatial sounds and converts it to a sort-of meter made by the pixel graphic on the Circuit Playground Express. This acts as a visual representation that lets others know if an area may be too loud for the individual. The sensitivity may also be altered and fine-tuned to each specific user, as every user will have a varying sensitivity.
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.
