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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  2. […] An example of a product that embraces these concepts might be Ladyada’s x0xb0x (pronounced “zocks box”). It’s a ”better than the original copy” of an obscure music widget that has found a second life, after the original manufacture dropped it from it’s product line, as something somehow suitable for composing Techno music (excuse the fuzziness for a description, I generally hate Techno music). Although it’s a nitch product, it’s been so successful that there’s actually a waiting list to buy one, and the product comes in a kit form that must be assembled by the end user. A mature product, I see it’s already up to assembly run number five.. Of course the entire product is well documented; doing so has allowed a community to form, and enhancements created by enthusiastic users are shared back with the community. The firmware is, of course, open source, and here again users have submitted bug fixes and improvements which make the product even more valuable to it’s users. […]
