Wayne stopped by the show and tell (video) this week and showed off the Makerbuoy including its show and tell sticker, it’s off the coast(s) of Spain and the UK at the moment –
The Maker Buoy is a low cost, solar powered, open source drifting buoy. The Shop provides components, kits and assembled Maker Buoys for users requiring inexpensive ocean tracking. Buoys can be customized by the end user or by the Shop to include additional sensors.
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.
