NEW PRODUCT – Electroluminescent (EL) Panel – Aqua – plus extras
NEW PRODUCT – Electroluminescent (EL) Panel – Aqua – plus extras. This is a big sheet of flexible plastic coated with EL material so its like one big glowing square. It emits an even aqua glow over the entire shape, and you can even cut it into any shape you want using scissors as long as the connector is still attached (you’ll probably need a few inches of the edge as well).
Measures 20 cm x 15 cm (7.9″ x 5.9″), about 0.5mm thick
Comes with a matching high power 12V inverter and a female DC jack so you can plug it directly into a 12V supply. (This panel is not going to run on our pocket inverter, you really need to have 12V!) The full panel draws about 210 mA from a 12V supply.
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.

Can this panel be laser cut with good results? I don’t trust myself with scissors.
@glenn, this is not meant for laser cutting.
Instead of the usual “what do I need for this project” search for supplies, I now feel compelled to find a project to use this for!
@glenn, If not directly in a laser, you could probably lasercut a sheet of thin vinyl, overlay it on the panel and cut with scissors.
I must lack imagination because I can’t think of how you would use this. Can any one give an example of an application for this cool stuff?
