Join Adafruit on Mastodon

Adafruit is on Mastodon, join in!

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, 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.

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. Um, maybe not such a good idea from a safety standpoint. If you get thrown from an abruptly stopping bike with your fingers in those loops, you’re going to wind up with a high count of broken digits.

    There’s a lot of delicate wiring in fingers that’s not so easy to fix when they get mangled.

  2. I think its pretty clear that this is the MOST UNSAFE THING EVER


    its so damn cool!

    which is why we blogged it

  3. As a former bike designer I can say this is a horrible accident looking for someplace to happen. I can also say that I’d like the idea to incorporated into a set of brake levers!

  4. Just google ,degloving, and you will get an idea of what is waiting for the person who rides that…… but I still want one.

  5. Just thinking something round like a motorbike helmet (only a lot smaller) with padding would be a heck of a better idea?

    If you like metal and the weapons thing why not jut get into the medieval armor / reenactment?

    On the other hand having been a cyclist and given up because of cars I can understand wanting to carry something like this!

  6. Do you have them on your pedals too? 😉
