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.

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. Mashing together a homemade 12vdc USB charger and an fm transmitter to use my iPhone as a music source in my car without a mountain of other gadgets cluttering things up (yeah, you can buy nice pretty ones, but I’ve got all the parts I need for the power supply and an old transmitter, and I like to tinker)

  2. a ‘Duino based pyro firing system, a maple chest, and a pair of pants. woot for too many projects at once! 🙂

  3. Up at seven making the almighty tomato sauce for this years Italian based dishes. You know spagetti and lazonia gnochi mmmm veal on a bun cabage rolls…. Need I go on?

  4. A twittering toy based on the Adafruit Ethernet shield and an XPort Direct module….it works great! More info soon. 🙂

  5. Using Art of Illusion and the MakerBot CupCake to “print” a t-track clip, ball-and-socket swivelling mount to attach a couple of surplus network cameras to the ceiling by the window at the end of the hall at work tomorrow, so those of us without windows can still get a glimpse of the world.

  6. Right now I’m making a generator to power my home from vacuum energy. By creating two vacuum regions with different zero-point energy levels and inducing a flow between them through a magnetic conduit, I can extract some of the energy.

    Just kidding. I’m making a ham radio transmitter from a Boarduino.

  7. Finishing up an ESR meter.

  8. fixing my fing sprinklers for the last time!!!!!

  9. Various things in the KA1KJZ Mad Science Laboratory and Technologic Workshop ™. Tossed together a quickie cylon/knight rider LED sequencer “just because”. And playing around with environmental logging and reporting with Arduino(s) vs Pachube.

  10. Made my first board in Eagle and using Batch PCB to fab them.

  11. Arudino controlled Asteroids clone (in processing).
    It’s my 2nd arduino project, and is a success!

  12. In a switch from electronics I actually built a TABLE. Of course, I designed it on a computer and “printed” it with a Shopbot CNC router, but still.
