Once assembled, I installed the Crickit FeatherWing and Feather 32u4 to the platform. I tested the capabilities: servos, NeoPixels, the capacitance pads, and finally the key was to make this robot move. I did not quite get sound to work but there is a speaker and audio component built in (I had envisioned a “wake-up series of tones” for a later add-on). I also wanted to add a “PIXY2 pan-n-tilt camera assembly (a later add-on… I have that working offline).
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.
