A pair of brooches that are not only decorative, but also interactive and educational! These flower-shaped PCBs are wearable brooches that each functions like an Arduino UNO with integrated components all on the same board and connect to each other through Bluetooth.
Jointly created by Art by Physicist (Dr. Kitty Yeung) and DFRobot, they contain an integrated power management system, RGB LED lights, an accelerometer, a touch sensor, and a vibrating motor. The brooches support Arduino and Scratch programming and can be used as the core intelligent control unit for wearable products, interactive art installations, and new accessories. The brooches come in matched pairs.
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.
