NEW GUIDE: Circuit Playground TFT Gizmo Snow Globe
In this guide we’ll show you how to use a Circuit Playground Bluefruit along with a TFT Gizmo to create a digital version of a snow globe. We’ll display customizable snow globe goodness on the TFT. You’ll be able to set a custom background, create custom snow flakes, and of course shake to clear the snow globe and start it all over.
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.
