In this video from the Hobby Night channel, Angela shares 5 “hacks” that she’s discovered during pandemic isolation.
While these are directed at tabletop game hobbyists, all of them are applicable to other types of hobbying, crafting, and making. They include using small organizer boxes to store and organize parts, various uses for poster putty, using cool box art as backdrops for photographing small objects (in Angela’s case, painted minis), and using brush soap as a conditioner and re-pointer.
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.
