I just discovered your site and company and I wanted to send a brief email to say how much I appreciate what you are doing. I grew up in the 1970’s – in the days of Heathkit and Radio Shack (the REAL radio shacks!) when electronics was a common hobby, and kits brought me into electronics at an early age. (see my favorite toy here)
Although electronic design is no longer my primary occupation I still develop projects in my spare time and I had been looking for a company to make kit versions of some particularly cool projects, such as my current modular Nixie system, where hobbyists can use Nixies for any display application with a BCD or serial controller and modular power supply.
Anyway, thanks for being out there and keeping electronics open and available to the new generation of engineers. You are awesome!
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.
