3D Hangouts – Footswitches, Party Parrots and Naboo Starfighter

This week @adafruit we’re making a three button foot switch with CircuitPython and QT Py RP2040. Prototyping a zoetrope with Adafruit Crickit featuring Party Parrot. The timelapse this week is Mando’s N-1 Naboo Starfighter. It’s gonna be Wizard!
