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. I just ordered some EL Wire to do this.

    What bag did you use? I ask because I didn’t see it mentioned and I’m sure someone will ask (I’ll probably convert a vertical slingbag, but still)

    Killer project idea (I’ve been thinking of using EL wire to do something tron related for a long while now) that I’ll be doing over the new year 🙂

  2. wow, nice idea.

    There is so much more you can do with that.,… i am thinking about EL Wired Jackets and Pants 😀

  3. Ha – those are great pictures!
