When you’re out and about at a convention or conference sometimes you want to be a social butterfly, but other times you’d prefer to float anonymously amongst the crowds. In this project, you’ll build a conference badge utilizing a tiny traffic light that you can use to symbolize to the world your socializing preferences in the moment.
This project will show you how to use light_sleep in CircuitPython on the QT Py ESP32-S2 to conserve battery life and give you some ideas for using paint and diorama supplies to add detail to your 3D prints.
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.
