extra funding being used to hold hackathons, upgrade watchstraps from silicone to leather (optional), licensing international fonts and premium weather data streams, building app store, etc.
sdk and emulator, .NET Micro Framework
dual-processor, built-in power metering
7 days battery runtime (typical), up to 30 days battery runtime (watchface-only mode)
watch app store — and you can side-load apps (run *anyapp, no walled garden)
we are open sourcing our .NET Micro Framework port for the new SAM4S microcontrollers.
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.
