The NeXT Computer (also called the NeXT Computer System) was a workstation computer developed, manufactured, and sold by NeXT Inc in the 1980’s and 90’s. At Adafruit we have collected a few non-working (and working) NeXT stations, including using an Arduino to rescue some old keyboards for present day use. The following series of photos are real, we have water jetted a circle in a non-working NeXT slab (also called the “pizza box”). Photo by John De Cristofaro, water jetting by Mike Estee, NeXT collection of Limor Fried and Phillip Torrone.
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.
