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. I want to use Gemma and NeoPixels to make a hair decoration for my niece. I know I need to coat the back (and solder pads) of the NeoPixel and Gemma with something to protect her from the battery current. Have you used hot glue before? I want her to be able to easily modify or add more NeoPixels later.
    I plan to use the silicone wire for better flexibility and longer life. But I figure it is better to plan for repairs.

  3. I hope it is not too late to ask this, seeing that I just thought of it a few minutes ago. I have some parts around and was thinking of incorporating a gps module, flora and a strip of neopixels into a hat. Do I need to put in a different code for the strip? The gps jacket says to use the Flora Neopixel code. Is the normal neopixel code okay to use. Just wondering. Thanks. You guys are awesome.
