Adafruit Weekly Editorial Round-Up: Shipping Alert, World Teachers’ Day, Hispanic Heritage Month, Halloween & PyLeap BLE Controlled NeoPixels with CLUE
ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP
We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.
Leap into controlling NeoPixels over BLE! One of the CLUE’s many features is BLE connectivity, which opens up possibilities for utilizing wireless communication. In this project, you’ll use the PyLeap app to wirelessly load the project code onto your CLUE. Then, you’ll connect to the CLUE with the Adafruit Bluefruit Connect app to change the colors and animations of a strip of NeoPixels over BLE.
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.
