Take a Tour of Assistive Technology of Maker/User Chris Young with ATMakers.org
Bill Binko of ATMakers.org visited me here in Indianapolis to assist me in constructing a new edition of my “ultimate remote” that does IR control of mouse, keyboard, cable box, TV, Blu-ray and other devices as well as Bluetooth switch control for my iPhone. While he was here we took the opportunity to take a tour of all of my assistive technology projects that I use on a daily basis.
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.
