CANCELLED: SAC-100: Party Badge Wearable with the Circuit Playground Express
What You'll Learn
Create a fun party wearable in this beginner friendly programming and electronics class.
In this workshop, we’ll program a fun party wearable device using the Circuit Playground Express from Adafruit. https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-circuit-playground-express
The wearable will use its onboard speaker to ask questions about your favorite things (dogs or cats, mountains or beach, favorite color, etc.). You’ll answer using the push buttons and touch pads on the wearable. Then it will light up in your favorite color, and watch for other Circuit Playgrounds in the area using IR sensors. When it finds one, it will compare that person’s favorites with your own, and light different colors to show the comparison results. Project includes a LiPo battery and charger, so you’ll have a complete party wearable to take home with you!
