As some of you have asked or noted – there is now an updated version of the Ice tube clock kit. We are upgrading every customer who ordered last week to version 1.1. What’s in the update? We added some circuitry to the PCB to better protect the kit. All kits shipped will be v1.1, we’re waiting for the revised v1.1 PCBs. The revised PCBs which will be here this week. We have tons of tubes and all other components and the kits will start shipping this week. Customers will receive an email when their kit ships and can email us any time with any questions. After all the current orders ship, new customers will have a higher price (the price has gone from $65 to $70). We apologize for the delay – we think the additional improvements are worth a short delay in shipping.
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.
