We are back! 2010 will be another great year for open source hardware

The Adafruit team is back and recharged. Our team back in NYC took care of all the orders while we were gone and we were able to do support, “Ask an engineer” and most of the day to day tasks remotely. We went kite boarding, snorkeling, ran on the beach, ate animals from the sea, designed some electronics in the sand before the waves washed them away, good times. We’d like to thank our customers, friends and family for understanding we took some time off, we’re looking forward to 2010 and doing some open source hardware! Enjoy some photos!


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.

  1. Glad you were able to take a (very) well deserved break. Best wishes for a successful 2010.

  2. Congrats on taking the time to get away and recharge. Welcome back.

    BTW – Great pictures.

  3. Hope you had fun!

    And yes, I expect this to be a great year for open source hardware. I’m in the initial stages of an open project, and I know there are many others working on getting open hardware projects out, yourself included.

  4. damn…thats some clear water. swimming in tokyo is like swimming in the tar pits.
    welcome back 🙂
