Adafruit MatrixPortal makes it easy to create a custom LED sign #RBG
Using the plug-in MatrixPortal board we just released last week, we were able to make a sign that we brought to the Ruth Bader Ginsburg memorial vigil in NYC. The code displays three initials and then scrolls through an image of the Justice. We used the matrix magnetic feet to temporarily attach it to PT’s bag, it was solid but easy to remove at the end of the night – 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.
