NEW GUIDE: CircuitPython Powered AT Hand-Raiser #AssistiveTechnology #CircuitPython #Adafruit #AdafruitLearningSystem #Trinket #3DPrinting @AT_Makers

A new guide today in the Adafruit Learning System: a CircuitPython Powered AT Hand-Raiser

Sometimes folks need help doing the simple things that most of us take for granted – that’s where Assistive Technology comes into play.  For example, ATMakers recently had a college student reach out and ask for help getting her professor’s attention in class.

The problem was she has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and couldn’t raise her hand.  So, we created this small Trinket-powered device that attaches to her laptop or tablet and lights up when she wants to participate!

Along the way, we found a fantastic way to control CircuitPython code using nothing more than the USB cord and Windows, Mac or Linux scripts loaded on the Adafruit Trinket M0 board itself.

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.
