NEW PRODUCT – Foot switch. Your friends probably tell you that you are “good with your hands,” but now you can also be good with your feet! This foot switch is made of rubbery plastic, is plenty strong to put up with any amount of stomping, and contains a snap switch. You can use the switch as either a “normally open” or “normally closed” type. Attached to the switch is a 2 meter long cable so you can wire it directly to your project.
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.

I could have used this a couple week’s back! Using the USB programmability of the Arduino UNO, I made a “foot mouse” (just buttons, though) to allow me to more easily do 3d-modeling with Sketchup using my trackpad. I ended up using an old Sony dictation machine foot switch instead, but I love the look of this one.
