As a few of you know, we recently raised a seed round of funding from True Ventures. Liz Gannes covered it today in AllThingsD.
This project and community has grown into something we’re extremely proud to be part of. When we started, Eric and I talked a lot about trying to maximize “Return on Adventure”. That’s still the goal. And it’s the entire community that makes it possible. Colin’s trip to Tulum is a perfect example. We want to make sure that being part of this community translates into more excitement and adventure.
True is a great partner. Jon Callaghan and the team understand the new hardware landscape, and understand the value of a strong open-source community. Raising money means we’re going to be able to invest more in the technology as well as the community. For instance, we’re building a new platform – Open Explorer – to make it easier to share your expeditions in real and near-real time. More tools to empower all of us to go further.

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.
