Sometimes, you need to protect your favorite toy or special cookie from sneaky siblings or parents. I wanted to keep my stuff safe and secure, so I decided to DIY a Portable “DO NOT TOUCH MY STUFF” Alarm from an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express.
It’s basically an alarm that will go off if someone tries to move your stuff. This won’t really “STOP” people from taking your things, It will just make it harder to do it unnoticed.
And to give things a bit more fun, I designed and created a special case to hold everything. I based my design on the ones from Adafruit and 3D printed everything.
See the video below which includes extensive notes in the description. Great work!
Are you a Circuit Playground Express and/or MakeCode fan – let us know in the comments below.
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.
