Keen-eyed readers of HackSpace magazine #23 might notice the Adafruit “Pi Eyes” on the cover are running on the new Raspberry Pi 4…an unsupported hardware/software combination up to now. That’s not just Photoshop trickery, we really did get a version of the eyes code working on the Pi 4!
It’s in a rough state, but bleeding-edge users are welcome to download an SD image and try it for themselves, and we’re continuing to work at providing more well-rounded support for this board.
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.
