Building a Conference Table That Turns Into a Rad Gaming Surface
Bob and the team at I Like to Make Stuff had a spare room in their offices. They wanted to turn it into both a conference room and an entertainment/tabletop gaming space. They ended up building a large conference table that sits beneath a TV projector.
For business, they can use the conference table and TV projector. But when it’s time to chill, they can remove panels in the table and beam the TV down onto an inner surface of the table. There they can project maps for games like D&D and star fields for the Star Wars X-Wing game.
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.
