This week we’ve added a new feature to our Adafruit AR app. If you have a Raspberry Pi Pico, you can now scan the board with Adafruit AR’s board scanner to display a pinout and power pin overlay.
Adafruit AR is using image tracking to locate the Raspberry Pi Pico board, then it displays an pinout diagram overlay.Now you are able to see your pinouts even if your Raspberry Pi Pico board is on a breadboard!
This Adafruit AR has been updated and uploaded to Github. Check it out!
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.
