NEW PRODUCT – Open source Upgrade stickers! You hacked, modded or made something BETTER with Open source! Adafruit offers a fun and exciting stickers to celebrate achievement for electronics, science and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share. Designed by Tyler Cooper from Coobro, a great open-source hardware company!
The greatest part of making, sharing and selling open source hardware is what happens after it gets out in the world We are constantly surprised by the things people do with open-source products and projects. Makers email pictures of hardware hacks, and post code that takes devices in directions we had never dreamed of or thought possible. We know are not alone in this, and have a strong feeling that anyone who has released open source hardware has spent time digging through web searches and forums looking for projects that have used their hardware in unique ways. We want to celebrate these open source hardware hacks and upgrades. Anytime someone modifies a piece of open source hardware and adds to either the code, or the hardware, we will attach one of these badges of honor to the maker (and project!).
2 stickers, each about 2″ x 2″ (50mm x 50mm). Artwork can be downloaded 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
