EVERYBODY has at least one good invention up his sleeve—and now’s the time to cash in on yours!
Remember that idea you had last winter for a device to beat off air-raids? You always meant to get to work on it, but somehow never did. Or maybe you thought of a new kind of searchlight while working on your boat. Or a stunt which you believed would simplify minesweeping.
You’ve probably had ideas like these, or ones similar to them, at some time in your life and put them aside because you were ashamed to talk about them. Afraid your friends would ridicule you, or call you a nut.
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.
