The Aniomagic Store for etextiles is now closed. We had a really fun time making some exciting contributions to etextiles from 2007 to 2015. I thank you so much for your support and cheerleading all these years, and I’m grateful we got to interact, collaborate, and hold amazing workshops with you, from Rio to Tokyo, from London to the bay. Unfortunately, the time has come for me to pursue other passions, and making the decision to close this 8-year chapter of my life was really difficult.
Many many heartfelt thanks to Osamu, Seiko, Leah, Nate, Dia, Ali, Brad, Nilton, Lynne, Micheal, and so many other individuals for your support. The Sparkle programming pages will be left up indefinitely, but no products or new content will be created as of July 2015. All the best! Nwanua

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.
