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.

  1. You made me do it! I had to read that issue almost cover to cover. Or at least the ads, anyway. But I found something interesting on page 348: an article on “Paddles”, which are circuits made to plug into breadboards. The paddles described include a pulse generator, a 2-digit LED display, and A/D and D/A converters.

    Kind of like some of the breakout boards Adafruit has been inventing to make things easer for experimenters, a mere 33 years later!

    Everything old is new again…

  2. Thank god we came up with SDCards, can you imagine lugging those giant disks? 🙂
    They did go spot-on for that Blackberry keyboard, though. Good Job! 😀
