@adafruit in a @radioshack ad…. well, USB Boarduino 🙂 Thanks Tyler! Just to make it clear, we didn’t know about this ad, USB Boarduinos are not for sale in RadioShacks as far as we know!

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.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
Good (and weird?) to see your stuff with the Shack, I hope this brings more exposure to Adafruit Industries! 🙂 Is that a variation of the LCD backpack under the LCD?
Oh, and I love how the battery(?), resistor and transistor are soldered, ready to function. ish.
ps – is that one of the new 1 x 26 + 1 x 29 char LCD’s? 😉
I used to work at Radio Shack years ago (1993-1996) because of my interest and knowledge and wanting to help people. But then all that mattered after a short while is how many cell phones I sold to people who didn’t want or ask for them. I would like to see them get back into DIY, but man that will be a tough trip..
Awesome. Looks like the Ratshack folks are hoping for some residual sales from the Ad?
@k scharf – blister packaging is pretty wasteful and the products sold in retail store have virtually no margins for the seller (us). between the packaging, shipping and the crazy agreements you need to sign with retailers we’ve decided to stick to online sales and our resellers. maker shed for example has deals with frys and they sell our kits there (repackaged) in some locations.
we think we can spend our time and effort on making new open source hardware and not physical retail, we think more people will be buying things online or at special events like the many maker faires and hackerspaces.
all that said, items like the cufflinks and necklaces will likely be sold in specific retail outlets where the #s make sense for us.
