In this project, we'll show you how to turn an Adafruit Circuit Playground into a Star Trek Combadge! When tapped, it'll make the "chirp" sound effect!
The on-board accelerometer can sense being tapped, triggering a sound to the on-board mini speaker. No soldering is required! All of the components are already on the board. All you need to do is upload the code, plugin a battery, and tap!
Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Since then Adafruit has grown to over 25 employees in the heart of NYC. We've expanded our offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. We pride ourselves on having great prices, the best customer service, technical support and fast shipping. We hope we can assist you on your journey of learning - At Adafruit we celebrate engineering happiness!
