Neopixels? Check! These are individual pixels well placed for design
Sound Reactive? Oh yeah! These puppies will dance to music thanks to a small mic
Practical? Yes! Slim lightweight electronics and custom PCB makes for comfortable wear
Timely? You bet—great for Halloween events and any other upcoming party excuses
TV Connection? Yes! The third mode for the LED pattern is Stranger Things
Space Connection? Whoa! SupaTreadz lists his job as “Aerospace Engineer on the ISS Meteoroid/Orbital Debris Protection Team”
A big ISS salute to SupaTreadz and his amazing ’80s inspired glasses. If you have a cool video of one of your projects sitting on your phone, please do upload it to Youtube and send us a note. We love showing off your cool work and it really does inspire others. If you don’t have a project and you want your own color crazy glasses, check out our tutorial for Celebration Spectacles. You’ll get swirly fun with the magic of Neopixel rings.

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.
