I stuck a fluxgate magnetometer to my finger, connected it to a wristband that feels sounds, and added a rainbow LED matrix, so I can feel electric current flowing through circuit boards and walls.
Why? Because I slammed too many cocktails and entered Hackster.io’s contest to Expand the Human Experience. They sent me a Neosensory Buzz haptic wristband, and now I need to augment myself or get cut off from free hardware forever. Just a normal day in Voidstar Lab.
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.
