Not only does Ladyada personally test all the electronics, she also tastes them.


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. /me hear’s "ho ho ho" in the distance…

    Hope it’s available soon. 🙂

  2. That’s on my need list! Are those 1.6″ digits?

  3. Sweet-ness!!! Colors? Please say BLUE!!!

  4. What are the ones that can make letters — 14 segment LEDs? I never see them used in projects. Are they more difficult to deal with? More expensive? Less available? Those would be interesting to use.

  5. 14 segment displays and more complete 16 segment displays cost somewhat more to produce than a seven segment.

    The bigger issue is that they are not as widely used, making them less available, and more expensive, in a feedback cycle.

    Also, while a 4 digit display possibly with colons and or decimal separators is a very useful size for 7 segment displays, for alphanumeric displays more characters are frequently needed.

    While scrolling can alleviate this, having at least 6 visible characters at a time can greatly increase legibility, but adding quite a bit of cost to a small project.
