We can’t wait for spring to arrive, and we’re looking forward to caring for some plants! We designed this little add-on for micro:bit or CLUE boards – bolt it on with 5 screws to get a buzzer/beeper, motor driver, and breakouts for connecting a soil sensor (two alligator clips + nails work just fine). Simple, but effective!
8mm Buzzer/Speaker on pin P0 – have your plant kit beep when it wants watering, or have it sing a song when its nice and happy.
3V Motor control (on/off) on pin P2 – connect to a water pump to automatically water dry plants
Alligator clip pads for pin P1, 3V, and GND – connect to two alligator clips and nails to measure soil resistance
Works with micro:bit in Arduino, MicroPython or MakeCode. For CLUE, you can use CircuitPython or Arduino. Code and tutorials will be live when the product is in the shop for purchase!
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.
