I made this cardboard Iron Throne inspired by HBO’s Game of Thrones for my very regal and deserving cat Arthur. I posted it on Reddit afterward and it went viral. I’m happy to report Arthur has been really enjoying his new bed. Formerly, he was always hanging out in this sad, old cardboard box.
When I first started making this project, I’ll be honest and say I had no idea where it was going to end up. Many of my projects start that way. But thankfully I took several pictures so I can show what I did.
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.
