“Every now and then when an idea comes up,” said Carter, talking about the back-and-forth at Adafruit. “We just discuss it and go: I got it. Let’s do it. That’s a great idea.” For some projects he’s done, he’s had the idea and he would ping Limor about it or she’ll have a seed of an idea and they’ll ping him. “It just grows from there,” he said. He posted the RGB Matrix Portal Room CO2 Monitor Project on February 2, 2021.
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.
