Circuit Playground digital fidget spinner with Tony D!

A digital fidget spinner built with Adafruit’s Circuit Playground classic and express boards. This fidget spinner has no moving parts and uses an accelerometer to detect flicks and animates the spinner motion around 10 NeoPixels on the board. You can press buttons to change the color and type of spinner animation too! The video walks through how to run the fidget spinner on a board and how the code and algorithm works. This version of the spinner uses Arduino and the Arduino programming languge, but stay tuned for a future version using CircuitPython and Circuit Playground Express!  

Circuit Walker Sneakers pt. 1: Accelerometer Filtering w/ Tony D!

part 1 in a series to build step-reactive light-up Circuit Walker Sneakers with Circuit Playground. Using the accelerometer and NeoPixels built into Circuit Playground classic and express you can build sneakers that light up with each step. This first video looks at the step detection algorithm and how to apply filtering to accelerometer values for basic step detection.  

Make With Python: Reprise of World Maker Faire 2017 Talk

Reprise of Tony D’s talk from World Maker Faire 2017 and Seattle Mini Maker Faire 2017, “Make With Python”. Learn about interesting hardware that you can program with the Python programming language. This talk describes what is the Python language and why you might want to use it instead of other languages or tools like Arduino. There are live demos of blinky things powered by Python code!
