I really love Hak5’s Rubber Ducky. I’ve seen similar projects but none with Adafruit’s CircuitPython. Last year we at India Linux User Group Delhi (ILUG-D) celebrated CircuitPython Day and that was when I first got my hands on Express boards. The best thing about this board is that you got everything on board like Speaker, Mic, Bluetooth, Accelerometer, IR sensor, etc. I really like the fact that it can inject keystrokes via USB, Yea something similar to Rubber Ducky!
Using this device is as easy as eating beans. Just plug it in and it’ll mount itself. Make a new file called code.py as CircuitPython will recognize this file as the main file from which it’ll run code. Mason goes on to write a payload text file parser. So a file named payload.txt will be read and the actions taken. Done in just a few lines of modifiable CircuitPython code! And quite a command set.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
