This cute handheld is a ultra-retro gamer with an Arduino core. The display can do full color and is great for basic 8×8 arcade displays. They sent me 20 boxes with kits, laser-cut handles (as shown) and printed out instructions. Its easy to make (the documentation is better than mine), perfect for someone with a little bit of programming experience such as with Arduino who wants to make little games. Check out their webpage for details/downloads & give one to your 8-bit loved ones for the holidays.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
