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.

I’m new to electronics and Adafruit and have enjoyed the learning process! My question is in regards to shape memory alloys or muscle wire and wearables. Have you used them before and if not how do you recommend getting started.
What would be the best Micro controller to implement into a DIY laser tag system? It would need to power like 4 LEDs, 2 IR recievers, 2 IR LEDs, and a tactile switch. Also what should I use to attach the sensors to a person’s head?
What sewable/washable/flexible material would you recommend to use as a defuser? I have used batting and white fleece but it gets bulky by the time I defuse neopixels or sequins enough have nice soft even back lighting.
