3D Hangouts – Feather RP2040, Guardian Robot and Github Skyline @ecken @videopixil
This week we’re taking a look at the Feather RP2040. Work in progress this week featuring Guardian egg robot from Zelda Age of Calamity and a 16×16 NeoPixel matrix. Timelapse of LadyAda’s GitHub Skyline trophy. A trio of fun community makes to end the show.
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.
