NEW GUIDE: Pathfinder Robot Companion @adafruit @johnedgarpark @sugru #apexlegends
Pathfinder is a fan favorite character from the game Apex Legends. In this new guide, John Park shows you how to build your own interactive desktop Pathfinder desktop companion, complete with AdafruitPyPortal chest screen, voiceover lines from the the game, and glowing LED robot eye!
We’ll build Pathfinder using 3D printed parts, Sugru moldable glue, and an array of electronics, all running on the touch-screen display PyPortal coded with CircuitPython.
Note: This project was built in partnership with Sugru — check out this link for a chance to win a 3D printer to help you build your own Pathfinder.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
