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.

I work for a great company that does a “Mad Science Friday” event every couple of months. Basically you get one full workday (9am-6pm) to start create and finish a project of your choosing. I was thinking of making a cool wearables project with my arduino. More specifically a company tee shirt with animated graphics. I have a Neo pixel Jewel, a 16 Neo pixel ring, EL wire, a 16 x 32 smart matrix board and various RGB and assorted color LEDs. So here are my questions:
1.) What would be best to use for said project out of these?
2.) Is there something else i should use rather then what was listed?
Thanks for your help and your inspiring webcast 🙂
