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.

  1. Why does the White EL Wire look blue in every picture I’ve seen on the Adafruit site? Maybe something to do with your camera (I know how hard this can be)? The reason I ask is that I’m thinking these EL Wires may be useful illuminating objects in macro-photography. Thanks, Drone

  2. They’re not a pure white, the coating is pink to try to neutralize the real aqua color. So it has a blue tint, check the datasheet for wavelengths.

  3. @Drone: I would recommend against using EL lighting for photo work except as a special effect accent light. Their output spectrum is just not suited to rendering a subject well in a (realistic-looking) photograph, and you will be agonizing over (unresolvable) color-balance issues.
