Based on the GHI Cerb 40 the Threadneedle is designed specifically for prototyping wearable electronics using the full power of the Cerberus firmware and the .NetMF platform
Power can be switched between USB (whilst developing) or battery by using the 2 pin JST for use when sewn into clothing.
All capabilities are the same as the GHI Cerb 40 with one exception, the USB Host pins have been removed as they are currently not supported with the open source firmware and save some space to allow for sizeable sewing holes.
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.
