Conway’s Game of Life on RGB Matrix using CircuitPython @adafruit @circuitpython
…this sunday we’re testing out a new pr for adding support for ‘hub75’ style rgb matricies to circuitpython. we’re also honoring prof john conway, who was an amazing mathematician who recently passed away. conways game of life uses simple rules on a matrix of data to create organic-seeming lifecycles. this 32×64 matrix is being driven by a feather m4 – we have samd51 and nrf52840 support coming soon – watch the blog for when its merged – video.
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.
