Build this looping slideshow viewer to show off beautiful artwork on the Adafruit MagTag grayscale E-Ink display!
CircuitPython makes it simple to make a looping image slideshow, and the MagTag library simplifies the use of the buttons, NeoPixels, and the speaker to give you a user interface with visual and audio feedback! You can pause and play your slideshow, advance or go back to an image manually, and turn on and off audio feedback.
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.
