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.

    135 Volts! Neon lamps FTW, in the era before LEDs.

  2. Whee! A good old relaxation oscillator. These also make nice ‘fireflies’ outdoors on a summer night.
    A bunch of common 9V batteries connected together in series will make a good substitute for the obsolete battery specified here.

  3. Evidently you can still get the batteries.

  4. Two 9V batteries won’t work in this case. You need at least 90V to light up a neon bulb. That is why here are used two 67,5Volt batteries.

  5. Damn. Just when I thought I had an original idea…

  6. What the…. I think I have the original article at home..
