Adafruit is testing SQUARE payment system – WE HAVE BETA DONGLE. Here are some photos and video! It’s after midnight, this was a 30 sec vid, we’ll do another one later 🙂 So far we’ve taken payment with the system, works great – SQUARE did a wonderful job, small biz owners and regular folks who want to take payments are going to have a lot of fun with this.

[edit: the dongle is milled & glued, not 3D-printed!]


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.

  1. If I ever get to be a writer for a sci-fi TV show, I’m going to try to work the phrase “We have beta dongle” into every single episode.

    “Mr. Worf, report.”
    “We have beta dongle, captain.”
    “Engage!”

  2. Wonder if us Otterbox users will be able to use this?
    I can’t use an FM tuner on my iPhone due to the added bulk.
