You may have seen the turtle graphics library that ladyada ported to CircuitPython and thought, “Wow, that’s cool! But can I do that on 30+ year old hardware?” Or if you’re above a certain age you may remember doing something similar in school on an Apple II.
Let’s set up an Apple II emulator and run old school Logo to make our own turtle graphics!
See how you can use Logo in a browser or hardware emulator (or on real hardware perhaps?)
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.
