Say hello to the #Adafruit #PyBadge 👾🎮It’s got a cortex M4, 1.8in TFT display with 8 buttons, accelerometer, light sensor and speaker. Also USB charging, JST ports and runs makecode, circuit python and arduino!
This is low-cost, easy to use dev board built for programing games on hardware. We’ve crammed a ton of goodies in this credit card size package.
Makecode arcade is a block based editor for programming games. It runs in the browser and features tutorials, lessons and demo games you can get started. The built-in tools makes developing games fun and easy, so it’s great for a classroom setting. It’s got a game engine, sprite editor, collision detection, particles and hardware controls. Upload code over USB using games from the community. You can use it as a prototyping tool to make simple games or use it to teach students.
Turn it into an interactive conference badge with Circuit python. Draw custom graphics and interfaces. Play audio clips and display animated GIFs. Adafruit libraries make it easy to program sensors with drivers and support. Use the Mu Python Editor to write code and and debug with the built-in serial console. Circuit Python makes programing hardware awesome with code plus community.
Wither you want to develop games or just looking to play with hardware, Adafruit PyBadge features tons projects to get you started.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
