Build a prop from the classic anime and manga Sailor Moon with the Circuit Playground Bluefruit. In the series, the locket is gifted to Sailor Moon by Tuxedo Mask and magically plays a song and shows a crescent moon rotating. Using the magic of CircuitPython and electronics, you can recreate this effect.
This guide will show you how to use the Circuit Playground Bluefruit and TFT Gizmo to build a fun, wearable prop.
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.
