The Touch Board Starter Kit contains everything you need to transform your environment by turning surfaces, objects or spaces into sensors. It comes ready to plug and play, and is supported by a growing range of tutorials, visual guides, and project examples online. Whether you’re an absolute beginner, an Arduino programming pro or looking for a great gift for a tinkerer, this kit will let you start making your projects interactive in no time.
In this box you’ll find a Touch Board, Electric Paint, essential components and a Guidebook featuring a range of project ideas and inspiration. Follow the Guidebook’s step-by-step instructions to create three featured projects that turn touch into sound using the contents provided. The Touch Board is pre programmed to trigger MP3 tracks so no programming or electronics experience is required to get started.
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.
