New Year’s Countdown Clock With Circuit Playground
Here’s one from the archives!
Press a button on your Circuit Playground Express to begin the countdown of the last ten seconds of the year! It will count them down on the NeoPixel LEDs, and play Auld Lang Syne when the New Year has begun!
Plus, you can flip the switch to get to Party Favor Noisemaker mode, where you can blow on the Circuit Playground Express and it will animate the lights and play festive sounds!
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.
