NEW GUIDE: Circuit Playground & Bluetooth Low Energy

Circuit Playground & Bluetooth Low Energy is a new guide in the learning system:

Circuit Playground is an excellent all-in-one board for learning electronics, but did you know you can control Circuit Playground wirelessly from your phone or tablet?  With the magic of Bluetooth Low Energy and a little helper like the Flora Bluefruit LE module you can start experimenting with wireless control of Circuit Playground today!

Adafruit’s Bluefruit LE Connect apps for both iOS and Android provide a simple interface for controlling the digital inputs/outputs on Circuit Playground.  Toggle digital pins high or low to control LEDs, relays, or other digital devices.  Read digital inputs to detect when buttons are pressed or simple digital sensors activate.  You can even control the color of the NeoPixels on Circuit Playground wirelessly from a few clicks in the app.

Best of all there’s no soldering required for this project–just connect a few components with alligator clips and you’re all set!

Circuit Playground & Bluetooth Low Energy


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.
