I’m getting excited to show off my digital board design for Burgle Bros. by @tfowers. I’ve shown this before, but wanted to give folks a closer look. I’ve built 50 main tiles for Burgle Bros. rooms and about 25 edges and floor indicators. It’s all powered by a touchscreen based on an Adafruit Feather M0. Each tile connects via magnetic couplers and it’s address (I2C) is dynamically assigned based on tile setup.
The main room tiles with LEDs include 4 NeoPixels and is powered by an ATtiny84 programmed via the Arduino IDE. When the tiles are connected, the system boot process detects the layout and builds a custom guard movement deck that’s controlled by the main controller.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
