A lot of my designs have been nature-inspired and space-themed. Saturn is one of my favourite solar system planets. It has a beautiful ring. I’ve been trying to come up with a way to display the ring, while regular clothing does not accommodate such a shape. But we all love spinning skirts. What if Saturn shows up when we spin? Since a spinning skirt will create an angle, why don’t I add an accelerometer to detect the angle and light up the “planets” and “satellites?”
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.
