Welcome to the future, where your body is technology’s new frontier.
The sensors and computing power we’ve become accustomed to in our smartphones are starting to migrate to body-worn devices used for new purposes.
Google has stoked excitement for the category after teasing its forthcoming Project Glass headset, but it already faces competition from Vuzix which has been showing off its own Android-powered eyewear at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
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.
