The Great Search: SP4T Slide Switch #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #Adafruit @DigiKey @Adafruit
The Paper Shoot camera we did an unboxing of has a nifty SP4T slide switch. Slide switches are one of our favorite interface elements: they’ve intuitive for anyone and don’t get reset by a power loss. Let’s look (video) at how we can find various slide switches, and how to identify what kind of switch we’ve got by symbol.
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.
