The Numberwang badge at #CCCamp2019 runs #CircuitPython #CCCamp19 @timonsku @HackadayIO @MicrochipMakes
CCCamp is a haven for creativity and Hackaday user Prof. Fartsparkle / Timon received great interest in his Numberwang badge.
The Numberwang badge itself is a clone of the Adafruit ItsyBitsy sporting a Microchip ATSAMD21G18 CPU and running CircuitPython. It has an LED strip on the reverse shining through the bare FR4 as a diffuser, and the Numberwang effect of selecting random numbers is achieved by a host of random touchable numbers sprinkled across its front.
For something he freely admits was a last minute project, we think he’s done a pretty good job!
Numberwang is a fictional gameshow from a BBC comedy programme with contestants answering questions with random numbers.

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.
