Making a ‘Big’ style floor keyboard with CircuitPython #CircuitPython @KarinChechik
For the last three weeks, IoT Makers Israel has held the Stay @ Home Challenge to encourage people to create an hardware/electronics projects. Sponsored by Adafruit, participants were asked to make an interesting project that you want to do using an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express (board or simulated in software). The challenge just ended recently and the announced winners via Facebook: Karin Chechik, Dor Alt, and Amit Edvy.

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.
