The project is based on circuit playground express and cricket. The concept is to reimagine what will happen if people have one more finger? Will our life become easier or will it cause troubles? The deliverable is a 3d printed finger which is controlled by a servo and the servo will be activated by flex sensor. The idea is inspired by different technologies for disabilities and the devices soldiers can put on in sci-fi movies. In those movies, such as Edge of Tomorrow and Elysium, People like soldiers wear these devices, which can work perfectly with human body motion. In reality, people make artificial limb using different technologies, such as using natural muscle signals (When muscles contract they generate electricity) to enhance the control of hand and arm prosthetics.
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.
