NEW PRODUCT – myDazzu – Programmable Wearable Electronic Wristband
NEW PRODUCT – myDazzu – Programmable Wearable Electronic Wristband – Design your own interactive light-up creation! Make a photo album that shines when you flip through it, a photo frame that lights up in the dark, a scrapbooking page that twinkles when you talk (with added sound/tilt/proximity sensors), and so much more. The Dazzu is an easy but inspiring introduction to wearable electronics.
The Dazzu board is a flexible, programmable board, with 3 LEDs that can be slipped into pretty much any project. It has built-in light and temperature sensors, and you can attach others for sound, proximity and motion sensing.
With it, you can make felt kits or paper craft that turn on in the dark, or when you press it. Wrap it around a vase, make a twinkling nightlight, slip it into a holiday album.
No tools or soldering required! Just add the Dazzu board to any project, insert a watch battery (included), and it will start to twinkle. If you make the wristband project, please note its for child-size wrists, not adults!

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.
