NEW GUIDE: Capacitive Touch Pulsing Heart with Circuit Playground Express & MakeCode
This NEW GUIDE uses 3d printing, electronics, and a little coding to create an anatomically correct heart that responds to being touched.
A great beginner guide to learn about 3D printing, coding with MakeCode, or anyone looking for a creepy addition to their next Halloween gathering.
Learn how to build your own Pulsing Heart on the Adafruit Learn System!
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.
