8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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. That’s so awesome! It makes me wanna buy a iPod Nano just for that…
    I AM looking at buying a new watch ATM, this is going to be a serious consideration 😛

  2. Just like Steve Wozniak wears.

    By the way, Ladyada, the resistor CAPTCHA used for the comment form can be REALLY hard for people like me that are colorblind. With as much as 10% of the male population being colorblind, you may want to consider tweaking it. (And for those of you who might wonder how I check resistor values, I use a multimeter.)

  3. @daniel, you posted a comment perfectly!

  4. Further to Daniel’s comment, did you know that your resistor captcha is impossible to use on an iPhone?

  5. @jason – hmm, we’ll check that out.

  6. @adafruit, yeah, once I got a CAPTCHA that I could actually solve correctly. (Even this comment took several attempts to post. It’s a unique and interesting CAPTCHA method, but also very frustrating for me.)

  7. Well, the Captcha works on My iPhone.

  8. Just a quick not about posting a comment with an iPhone/iPad. There are 2 ways you can adjust the resistor values. First you can tap and hold for about a half second, the move the slider, and second you can zoom in and move the slider with 2 finders. I mainly use the first method, and usually always leave post with an iPhone or iPad. It might take a few tries to get it, but once you do it’s cake after that. 🙂

  9. Now if could just work on my morning typing… :/

  10. I personally love this captcha, it even uses html 5!

  11. @jeremy thanks for the tips.

    It’s a bit tricky to get it to work but here I am on an iPhone! The UI experience might be something to look into though.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
