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. i think it should be stated that monome.org only allows a non commercial license, and in addition they don’t allow full kits to be sold. they have contacted this seller to ask them to stop selling kits and have been ignored.

    so while the open source component is nice, as a project its sort of despised on the monome forums.

  2. @maxamillion – can you post a link to the story about this, or forum post(s) from the monome folks, sounds interesting.

  3. These PICnome makers did a really good job. It’s PIC USB native, PICnome are making their own buttons. They designed their own board and made their own firmware. This is a completely new project. The MONOME people trying to deny someone else a living is very childish, especially since there are many companies that sell other Monome-like devices mass manufactured. PICnomes are oneoffs made by one person. PICnome is open source hardware. Thank you!

  6. @maxamillion – looks like the maker did everything correctly, posted files and released it with less restrictive license than the monome?
