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. Wow. I’ll take two.

  2. Amaaazing o.o

  3. any more information on this massive amount of awesome?

  4. Does anyone have an idea of how this thing works? My best guess is that the area that is used as a touchscreen is fogged glass, not transparent, and there is a projector sitting in front of the DJ. It throws a reversed image on the fogged glass, which looks normal to the DJ on the other side. Figuring out where they touched could be done with some kind of capacitive touch sheet over the glass. What do you guys think?

  6. More information (although not much) is available here: http://tokenexperience.com/en/about/

  7. it’s a commercial DJ product:

  8. @Seth : http://tokenexperience.com/ (just click the Vimeo button when you see one of their embedded video, not straightforward I agree)

  10. Is the touchscreen a commercial product separate from Smithson & Martin’s “emulator” software? It does look like a frosted glass pane with a rear projector but there doesn’t seem to be any wires around the top of the glass to indicate capacitive touchscreen? If you look around 49secs in the video at the bottom right of the touchscreen (from the DJ’s perspective) it looks like there’s an IR LED flickering…could that be some kind of IR laser that covers the surface of the glass that highlights the touch points to a rear IR camera?

  11. Yeah – it’s commercial…uses a capacitive layer and a “frosting” layer to show the image…very cool.

  12. Maybe not – there is a commercial capacItive screen available for DJs that looks very similar to this, but the author of that video says it *is* a projected IR-CAM based screen:
