Hit the streets with littleBits. Check out projects featuring our newest accessory, the mounting board. The mounting board allows you to keep your circuit intact and move it around with ease! Simply snap together your littleBits circuit and press the feet of your modules into the holes of the mounting board. Here are a few examples of what you can make!
Skateboard – Trick out your ride with littleBits light effects. This sound-activated skateboard lights up the streets with LEDs and a light wire as you ride along. Simply attach your modules to the bottom of the skateboard with mounting boards! Hit the road and never look back.
Boombox –This portable mini boombox is great for carrying around town. Just place a synth circuit (with 2 speakers) on two sandwiched mounting boards and add an exterior casing. Then spread some music love to the streets.
Mounting Board Puppy Robot –This little puppy bot has two mounting boards for a body. Just add littleBits and some sturdy legs to get him walking. Control his stride by adjusting the pulse and slide dimmers that connect to his servo-activated legs. Activate the sound and motion triggers and he will happily come over and greet you.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
