As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.

  1. Hey, Limor, could you speak a little bit on your process for actually creating the metal casings? I know all the files are on github and I even remember you showing a video for one of the cufflinks being milled, but could you speak a little bit more on the process of getting the CAD files together, sending them to be milled, etc. etc.?

    I also would certainly like to hear a little bit about the prices involved (prototype, set up, etc.) but I understand if you don’t want to mention that at all.

    Looks awesome by the way! Can’t wait till your next wearable comes out!

  2. @dorkusmonkey – we work with mike, our co-designer, so we’re lucky enough to have him do that part of the process. our costs had everything included, but we do know it’s often thousands of dollars to do set up and prototyping.

    we’re going to visit mike in canada and hopefully video and talk on our show about this too.

  3. Hi kids, How about a pin back version for a tie pin or just to stick on your hipster groovy geek clothes?
    Beta Test? ;^}

  4. @kentb, that’s a really easy mod you could totally do that 🙂

  5. It occurs to me that it would be possible to sell cheap “inserts” for the necklaces and cufflinks as bare boards, or in different colors, algorithms and so on. Then you could take your necklace or cufflinks and substitute in different personalities, at the cost of just the electronics (cheap) rather than all that custom machined metal (expensive.) Any plans along those lines?

    Or they might appeal to the amateur machinists who think the metal is easy unless it’s solid tungsten, but don’t want to mess with chips…

  6. @westfw – of course 🙂
