To use, first remove the protective plastic wrap from both sides. Attach to your touchscreen controller (we suggest our AR1100 USB touch adapter if you need USB mouse interface, or the STMPE610 breakout for I2C/SPI) and test to make sure the screen works over all – remember that only one side will work for touch, so flip it over if you can’t get it working. Once you know which way is up, and you’ve got the touch screen talking to your controller, use double-sided tape to attach it to your screen, carefully lining up the outer edges.

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.
